|Peach, zisha teapot art by Xu Zhong Fan, Yixing, China|
original design zisha teapot art by Sun Jin Li
This original design horn-skinned beast is purely from the fantasy world of Zhao Chun Yi of Sun Jin Li Studio. It looks a little bit like some kind of prehistoric reptile with its horned skin and weighty body, but the face is more like that of a Grinch. So, if you are fond of dinosaurs, horny beasts, or other monsterish things, you'll love having this little beast in your collection.
It's frightfullly good for serving tea, too.
These beasts from Sun Jin Li studio have become so popular that we are already seeing copies of them in the teapot markets. In fact, several times we have seen copies that were priced higher than we priced the originals.

|64.||Hexagonal Teapot: original zisha teapot art by Wu Dong Jun
We like angular teapot designs, and the hexagonal shape is one that we have seen done in a number of ways. We liked this one because of its stoutness and larger size.
Wu Dong Jun is an award-winning teapot artists who is known for his innovative teapot designs.

|37.||Lotus Blossom with Frog
and Ladybug: original zisha teapot sculpture by Jiang Mei Zhen
This Lotus Blossom designed by Jiang Mei Zhen has beautiful detail lines, in the body. What really makes it special, however, is the little details. The lid pull is a smaller lotus bud that is free to swivel. The ladybug is a traditional component theme of teapot art, and so is the frog, but this frog also has eyes that are movable in their sockets.
Jiang says that she owes her talent and inspiration to the late, great artist, Jiang Rong who was her mentor and a distant relative. This was the first teapot that I fell in love with when I came to China because I just adored the design.

|85.||Lotus Seed Pod. original zisha teapot art
by Sun Jin Li, Yixing, china
Lotus plants (Chinese water lilies) have a large underwater root ball, flowers, vines, and pads, above the water, plus a seed pod, like this one, with seeds in it (see hyperlink page to see the bottom of the teapot and a picture of real seed pods). The spout is made to resemble lotus root, and the handle is a vine. Lotus is a theme in Chinese teapot art: we have a full lotus with root and leaves by Lu Wen Xia and several lotus themes by Jiang Mei Zhen, but this is the first one that we have seen with a realistic seed pod.
Tree Stump with Frog by Chen Min Jun, Yixing, China
The tree stump theme is a common theme for teapots, and we even have tree stump theme teapots of several variations by several artists. The difference between this and the others is that it comes in a fairly large size of 800 cc's, and it also has one of Chen Min Jun's detailed frogs on top, which is his trade mark and specialty.
