Nice pot 茶藝! I also really appreciated the previous posts with pictures of the other pots from your collection :)
Here is a pot got a few years ago:

It is a DiCaoQing pot by Pei Li, the granddaughter of Pei Shiming. It holds about 200ml, I use it for sheng puer. It has an amazing pour. The clay seems to enhance the sweetness of the tea, and I really like its color and texture.

The last two, lovely nice Taoist pots: natural and simple. This is how I like them best.

It's been quite calm around here these last weeks...

Qing yin zhongguo wulong cha SP, following Factory-1's 70's fashion (from what I know).
Clay: Qing shui ni, high fired, wood kiln (those are guesses, who really knows...).

Size: 135 ml, 10 cup size as stated in the lid.
Age/Year: late 70's to early 80's, thus not a rarity.
Walls: rather thick.
Pour: smooth with slight drips.

Tea Pairing: wulong of course, it's written on it. High fired young yancha for this one.
Info : a classic, but really not the easiest to find with good shape/clay/craftmanship. Happy with this particular one.

A little very simple SP, and this one is really water level and floats.
Clay: very smooth Zi ni (looks like a little more reddish Qing shui ni than previous teapot maybe because of lower temp firing), medium fired.

Size: 70 ml, single hole.
Age/Year: tricky but I'd say late 70's fashion (because of clay and craftmanship) and Factory-1. Or a fake, of course.
Walls: not really thick, not clearly thin...
Pour: this one's a little dripper.

Tea Pairing: wulong. High fired more expensive yancha for this one.
Info : same classic and nice shape, very quickly seasoning clay (despite being totally cleaned up), good craftmanship except for the lid fit which seems to be quite common for pots of that era (or fake mimicking this era, of course). Single to dual drinking.

If anyone has a clue for the lid seal, I'll be glad. I think it reads 妹春 which I translate as mèi chūn but that gives me no info...

My favorite shape, Li xing, a footed one.
Clay: zhuni, high fired.

Size: 115 ml, single hole.
Age/Year: ? I don't even want to guess. Deep lid with shui ping seal, simple feet, old style.
Walls: rather thin... a very lightweight teapot.
Pour: close to perfect but a bit longish, the single hole could have been a bit larger.

Tea Pairing: wulong. High end lighter yanchas (Bai ji guan, Bei dou yi hao).
Info : great shape, perfect craftmanship, very silky clay.

I bought this one partly because of the carved seal. I love Shan shui paintings.

Great pots Fabien! Love the san jiao li xing.

*edit*
it is really a si ting rather than li xing one right?

That's also one of my favourites, perfect shape and size for me. I love how the patina is slowly developing. The clay seems to fit perfectly with those teas that I appreciate so much.
