Alans Museum acquired a teapot made by Shi Xiaoma in the late 1980s. The teapot was probably one of his early work when he was still a student at the factory. The name Shi Xiama was engraved at the bottom of the pot. It is purplish brown in colour and the cover fits very well on the teapot. The cover and the pot are perfectly crafted with precision.
