1980s Di Cao Qing From the same collector who sold the KLP3 teapots. I wonder how many more he is hiding... anyway, here is one small sized version. 80ml. Single hole. I decided to take since no one grab it :)

Passed all 3:-
-Shoots water. Emptied less than 10 sec. No leaking while pouring.
-Water stops instantly when lid hole is covered.
-Fill with water. Cover the spout hole, turn the pot upside down. Lid didn't fall.

I believe 老泥 laoni "old clay" can refer to either genuinely old clay -- very rare -- or modern clay that imitates the look of old clay, and this would be the latter.


Welcome Dingshu. Interesting pieces indeed. Toki

Whoa.

How big is that one? Just trying to get a sense of scale for the incredible details of the bark and needles.

Wow. I had the impression it was at least twice that size, given the details.

Indeed a beauty. The maker did make a bigger version 3x the size of the pot above but the price is 1/2 of the smaller version. The smaller it is, the harder it gets (I guess).

Anyway, I will try to showcase more of such artist teapots for fun and will post up any for sale.

From the same teashop that sold the teapot above... here is a different artist teapot posted in KLP4

Hello everyone... I've been reading the forum for a while and just bought a yixing teapot from a tea shop in DC... that I wanted to show off. I'm trying to pair it with a tea right now.

I tried it with some Dan Cong, but I don't think it worked out too well. I'm trying it with some Gao Shan, and it seems to be working well. But I was wondering if anyone (maybe by looking at the pictures) could recommend a particular tea to test it out with.

It holds 150ml water. Empties in ~5.5 seconds. And passes the tests that auhckw described: (shoots water, stops when lid hole is covered, and when flipping upside down while covering the spout the lid stays attached)

I forgot I had these. This is a zisha cup with a white glaze. It is from the 1980's and was intended as an export to Russia. It has the original box with it. Of all the 1980's zisha cups I have, this is one of my favorites due to its quality and great shape.

Very funny looking pot. It looks like a toy. :)

I would personally brew puerh in it and see how it goes.

Haha thanks guys! I'll try some puerh in it.... and It'll give me an excuse to buy some higher quality puerh.

Since this is explicitly a Yixing show off topic...
