also how does the above one work is it as functional as it looks?
the teapot way above is fully functional.
the piece is destroyed if it does not function or even if the lid doesn't fit perfectly. it must pour perfectly.
my old teacher, ah Leon, there is a 'zone of tranquility' when the liquid leaves the spout to the container in which its being poured. not too much turbulence. there are many factors going into making teapots too. more than a teacup.
pieces below are all 'survivors' they work, function well.
one key point, i had the awesome opportunity to study w/gu mei qun and Ah Leon, probably the best teapot makers in the world !!
a collaborative show displaying the various sizes of teapots. the large one is big (green one)
