I am studying the craft yixing and it's hard to know the names of the classical models of teapots. If there are any errors, please let me know. Also if there is a manual online. thanks :D

Thank you! We were having a conversation about this with limited photos in another topic, and this makes it so much clearer!

I have to say, disappointed as you all might be in me, I did expect provocatively dressed ladies holding various teapots.

Good day. :oops:

Thank you for this! It's so helpful; having the bare silhouettes to look at and decide from, along with the names.

There are a few tidbits in this book:
http://www.amazon.com/Yixing-Pottery-Wo ... 159265018X
It includes a diagram of 38 teapot shapes with English names. You might try cross-referencing them with the Chinese ones you have.

If you want to put the Chinese name for consistency, I think the dragon egg one would be long dan. Including tone diacritics would be helpful. And shui ping should have an 'h' in it.

I've got a book (in Chinese) which has some drawings of shapes - I'll see if I can find / scan it.
