Jiang Rong's nephew

Zhang Zianchong, Jiang Rong's nephew, learnt the tradition form of teapot making from her aunt. His natural form of the Yixing ware has reached such a high standard where his work not only looks very real but also functions equally well. The late Jiang Rong was a National Grand Master in Yixing pottery.

Alans Museum has acquired a teapot by Zhang in the shape of a chestnut, one of Jiang Rong's favourte forms. The cover has the inscription of Zhang's name while at the back showed an inscription "Supervised by Jiang Rong".
