Gu Jing-zhou imitation. Compare with the attached pic below (portions)

There are only 2 kinds of imitation, one that pass the seal test and one that doesn't.

If it were the real deal, it would look shiny, no signs of use, and put under lock and key!

Personally feel that good pot must put to good use.
No point buying and locking up.

Ultimately most decision making buying old pot is the quality old zhu ni.

Moment of satisfaction arises when good puer tea presented in front of me n guest.

Thanks for all input and viewing

Thnx for the site!

Looking at his calligraphies, feels like he was quite a different level of person..even though I'm blind to calligraphy. He didn't need to call calligraphy masters to carve on his pots..he was a master himself..

In Yixing, it's quite rare. Grand masters like Tan Quan-hai, Li Chang-hong, Mao Guo-qiang etc..they are actually calligraphers. Lv Yao-chen, Gu Shao-pei can do a calligraphy as well, but then they are not as skilled potters as Gu. I've heard it's really rare to combine 'skills', 'cultural level' and 'creation' all together. :D

Even in Western art, it is rare to find an artist who is accomplished in more than one area. Perhaps the greatest example was Leonardo Da Vinci.
