Xu Yuanmin's zhisa
Xu Yuanmin is a senior craftsmaster of Yixing.
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 is another teapot by Xu made in the early years. This particular teapot has a conical shape with ribs on the body. The sprout is straight and short with an elongated handle. An interesting design. It is made from Yixing purplish clay and the name Xu Yuanmin was engraved at the bottom.
