Xu Yuanmin's 徐元明 pyramid

Xu Yuanmin (徐元明), a senior craftsmaster of Yixing, is currently attached to the Yixing Research Institute.

Xu Yuanmin's pyramid
Alans Museum has a number of his teapots acquired in the early 1990s, at a time when he was still an apprentice of the factory. This particular teapot has a triangular shape, modelled after the Egypt's pyramid. It is made from Yixing purplish clay and the name Xu Yuanmin was engraved at the bottom.
