Chao Wan is a talented young pottery artist from an established Yixing Zisha pottery family. As a child, he followed his parents to the Yixing Zisha Craft No. 2 Factory Research Institute where he was greatly influenced by Zisha art. Under the guidance of his father and many famous pot-making masters, he has laid a solid foundation and his skills have advanced by leaps and bounds. Chao Wan has gradually formed his own artistic style while inheriting his father's simple, generous, elegant, and prudent style.
Common "black purple clay" is one of the most widely accepted clays in the market. The clay color is mature and stable, dignified and solemn, and is suitable for making all teapot sizes. The ringing sound of the clay is a great achievement of the strict firing process. There is both an artistic and functional standard for evaluating Yixing teapots, and it should refine tea making by appearance alone. As we are tea-lovers, our proclivity is for shapes and styles that aid in making tea well. There should be a balance between beauty and function after quality. These classic, simple shapes are a perfect canvas to create a deep luster and patina over time.
