Vases from Yixing

Besides making teapots, Yixing potters also make a wide range of other products such as flower pots, vases, figurines and other decorative objects. It is well known that the flowers pots from Yixing are ideal to grow flowers and plants due to the minute porisities present in the clay. These will make the plants grow stronger and healthier.

Alans Museum has in its possession some vases and pots from Yixing. These are made form the yellow clay of Yixing. These vases are nicely painted with engravings of calligraphy and other artistic work. There are also some nuts made so real thay one may mistaken them to be the real things.
