Hmm I'm only seeing one shui ping. Side question: do the more angular modern looking pots have names? Or are they relatively recent compared to the traditionally shaped pots (xishi, shui ping, fanggu, etc.)
the Shi jin series was first made in '82, and consistently in production even up till the round laser label period.. (93-97).
each of the pots have names, and are made from different types of clay each
段泥六方 - duan ni hexagonal
紫泥方钟 - zi ni fang zhong
调砂石瓢 - tiao sha shi piao
三足炉 - san zu lu, three legged burner
绿泥凹肩 - lv ni ou jian, green clay curved shoulder
黑泥鱼罩 - hei-ni yu zhao (fish trap)
拼紫虚扁 - pin-zi xu bian (flat purple)
青灰合碗 - qing hui he wan
红泥君德 - hong ni jun de
绿泥西施 - lv ni xi shi.
a nice snapshot of the clay types that had been developed or used in the early 80s/earlier.
