That would be nice, but nope, not Ding Yaping. This is a supposedly fully handmade pot by Wu Juanjuan (吴娟娟), you can find her for instance on taohuren.com
The base has her seal.

I looked at the link you provided but could not find this artist. Can you provide a more direct link to her work?

Here is another link: http://www.izishahu.com/shop/zishahugon ... l-19.shtml :)
Sometimes you can also find her pots on Taobao
This might be hers as well, although I am not 100% sure: http://auction.artxun.com/paimai-69563-347813350.shtml

I just found a zini friend for my hongni bamboo pot, thanks to Tea Master's. :D Both pots are 80ml, high fired, and late 90's. Now, if anyone locates a duanni or zhuni version, please let me know!

The first teapot with the rings was an acquisition from today. I have not got it ready. It is new (not used and a big pile of mfg dust exists inside). The rings are double and the pot is high fired. I have an idea already as to what to pair with it, but I am convincing the girlfriend to explore some new territory with me. She loves nai xiang and I think this vessel is just the perfect one for it. But... we shall see!!!

And then a fun picture showing the three of my most recent acquisitions.
My photography skills leave a lot to be desired... ;)

Cheers!

This teapot showed up today. 255ml,high fired,no pour when hole covered,no leak. Anyone want to come drink tea with me? It's big and pretty, but not practical for me. But who could say no to an 18 dollar yixing? Anyone guesstimate the age and read the chop mark(s)?
