Zhou Juefang's (周菊芳) double

Zhou Juefang, Prof Pan Chun Fang's student, is currently a craftsmaster of Yixing. Apart from acquiring her skills and techniques from Prof Pan and his wife, Xu Chenquen, she develops her own style and technique and continue to look for breakthrough in designs of teapot. Together with her husband, they are famous for a series of teapots depicting the great earth. These teapots are made using the potter's wheel method and are award winning masterpieces. Some of her teapots are bought by museums and party headquarter for permanent display.

Zhou Juefang's double
Alans Museum has two piece of her teapot modelled around an oriental flower. They were acquired in the 1990s during Pan Chunfang's exhibition. They have a around shape with segments of petals of the flower. The design of the body which blends well with the cover, knob, sprout and the handle. The teapots are ideal to brew green tea. When hot water is pored into the pot, the colour of the clay immediately darkens to give a shinny and glossy appearance. It is really interesting to observe this colour change.
