THE GREEN TEA POT - LOTUS AND FROG ON TOP

Dear my friends,






The above teapot is a product of the maker's applied art. It was 
made after much thoughts, modifications and hard work before 
we see it as it is today. We would say that the design is more 
inclined to practical know how and its design serves more than 
for its intended purpose - it pours well to tea cups or tea bowls. 
You can also see everything in it - the tea must pour out 
smoothly from the pot if it is well designed and crafted. To 
make it collectible, it must look good and feel good with its 
ownership. To achieve these effects, everything counts - be it 
the shape, style, type of clay, the skill and experience of the 
maker.




















This tea pot is of pumpkin shape. Its lid comprise of 
lotus flowers with a frog resting on top - indicates peace 
and harmony; surrounded by the lotus flowers. Each 
flower consists of one tiny stone, which is freely moving 
around as you shake the lid. Thus producing such a 
chilling natural sound which may add colour to your 
environment of having tea with your loved ones.

Its clay is so much different from the normal ones - mixed 
with red, yellow clay and others and after firing in the kilns 
that produce different colors. Now, you are able to 
appreciate how creative is the artist's work, who is so 
skillful in engraving the clay till it is so adorable. 

















Look at its handle, it is not only bigger than the normal 
ones with a few rings along its handle so as to give the 
user a better grip, at the same time, it supports well the 
pot with its weight and content together with hot water 
- the art of balance is equally important here. Hence, 
you can see that it must be functionable, as it may be 
used frequently if not daily.

It comes with a big spout and hole - suitable for Puer 
tea which is of bigger tea leaves. The pot is of bigger 
capacity and the pu'er tea leaves will expand much 
more in hot water when compare with other tea 
leaves. Its spout at the very bottom of the pot makes
it much easier to pour out the tea. 

No wonder in recent years there has been an increase 
in admiration of these unique teapots. Consequently, 
its price has increased tremendously from a few 
dollars to thousands of dollars for a single pot. And 
with this increase in value, more talented artists are 
attracted to this trade and quality and the craftmanship 
are also enhanced. Hence, more scrutiny and quality 
control is imposed on every pot. Those rejected will 
then be smashed once they are out from the kiln. The 
makers, especially famous ones are very proud of 
their products and you can see their maker's mark 
("Chop Mark") at the bottom of each pot of their 
production. This seal authenticates the work.The seal 
is chosen by the maker with great care - sort of self 
image for them. Most of the famous potters have 
their seal from a well known engraver and the 
chosen characters of the seal are cut in stone. 


















You may agree with us that the pot can reveal most 
of the maker's preference and liking. Some potters 
prefer a little spout, some go for a heavy handle. 
Some reproduce trunks and knotty branches. Others 
have exquisite engravings of ratan or leaves. Each artist 
usually produces what he or she likes best. Each pot is 
represented by their individual thoughts and represented 
the best of what he or she thinks at the time of making.

Similarly, each pot has its own beauty and characteristics 
depending on its beholders. Here, you may say that its 
beauty in green clay is good for the mind and eyes. It will 
mould the sentiments, foster temperament, and improve 
health of its beholders.

In other words, to be happy and successful you should 
drink tea brewed in such a great product such as the above 
green clay of teapot.
