Looks very graceful and similar to an orange, Who is the artist, is it made by hand or from a mould and was it expensive?
It's made by hand but this company doesn't put its focus on the guy who makes it, but on the overall brand. The engraving may not have been done by hand, though. I think it's like a stamp and then it's painted by hand.This teapot is relatively more expensive than regular zisha, because zhuni is kind of rare. Around 100 USD, but best is to send me an e-mail at email@example.com to get the exact price.
Does Zhuni teapots have a wet and silky feel?
What is more striking is the sandy feeling
Older Zhuni teapots have a silky feel and wet look. Maybe its the way the potter refines the clay, if it becomes more refined it becomes less sandy. Does your potter use a dragon kiln or an electric kiln? If its the latter it may also contribute the different between old and new Zhuni appearances.
Yes, I have seen older zhuni teapots and know what you mean. It's also slowly beginning to show with this (as I compare with recent ones). An effect of time and of tea oil.My potter uses a modern kiln fired by gas.
