Kao XiangJun

Kao XiangJun, a renown potter from Yixing, was a student of Li Pifang.

Her teapots were so elegantly made that one can spent hours admiring them, let alone use them to brew tea. Teapots made by talented potter such as Kao XiangJun are not easy to get as they are very sought after by collectors.

For instance, the teapot below possesses such an elegance and fineness that no matter what angle you look at it, you will still like it. It is so perfectly made that you can enjoy its beauty for a long time. This is what got me attracted to collecting teapots in those early years. Looking at beautiful teapots, to me, is a good way to relax your body, refresh your soul and rejuvenate your mind.

I do have a teapot made by Kao XiangJun. It is a segmented shaped teapot made in the early days of her career in the Yixing Factory. The seal at the back of the teapot indicated her name. The hexagonal shaped teapot was the early product coming out ftom the factory. No mistake about its maker.
