Very interesting. Just to clarify, XuJianQing may have other helpers work on the YaYi brand pots, but (aside from reselling) he is the only one who sells that brand? In other words, is YaYi his brand only, or will you find other shops carrying YaYi pots made by other artists?

Also, I'm interested in learning more about the clays your uncle has access to and their "pedigree." Some close up shots of different pots would be amazing!

Hopefully I'm not annoying you too much with all the questions! It's not too common for us westerners to be able to ask in-depth questions and A) not have the question "lost in translation", and B) have someone willing to give straightforward answers. :wink: I appreciate it.

YaYi is his brand only.

For the question about clays, you'll have to bear with me for a while. I will make a related post over in "About Yixing clay and the current situation" under Teaware & Accessories soonish.

I believe including videos in TC posts is frowned upon, so I better not.
Since I made one though... if you'd like to have a look, please do so here:

The pot is made of zhuni, holds ~120ml and was completed at a night in the year of the tiger.

That's a very adorable pot--and a very unique little dragon! At the risk of antropomorphizing a teapot, the round design makes it seem like it's happy to be full of tea ... :)

The three little teapots from left to right are named "Long life peach", "Saint peach" and "Join Joy" teapot.

The long life peach teapot holds about 140ml.
Image

The saint peach teapot has a smooth traditional and modest mouth as well as body. It has at 175ml a slightly bigger capacity than the long life peach teapot.
Image

The Join Joy teapot has two big "和合“ characters craved on the body which mean "harmony and joined together", additional inscriptions "庚寅年春书“ tell about the pots making "inscribed in spring in the year of tiger". It is the smallest of the three with 130ml.

These three teapots are made in the year of the tiger(2010) by XuJianQing as written on the bottom of each teapot.

The Qilin also known as Kirin is one of the four spiritual animals written about in history. The other three animals are phoenix, turtle and dragon. Although it looks fearsome, the Qilin only punishes sinners. It can walk on water and grass yet not trample it. It is a peaceful vegetarian creature. It takes great care when it walks never to tread on anything living. It is normally gentle but can become fierce if a pure person is threatened by a sinner, spouting flames from its mouth. The Qilin brings rui, good fortune.
