The teapot is handmade as square shape. The button and handle are used Jiao Ni craft. Jiao Ni (绞泥) is one of the decorative crafts in making Yixing teapots. It is quite difficult to make,and tests the craftsman's real skills and grasp of clay.
The normal making of Jiao ni is to stack layers of different colored clays, beat them, and then cut them crosswise to form the required pieces. The textures formed are different.
And if any one of the joints of the Jiao ni is not in place, cracks will inevitably appear during firing. The shrinkage ratio of different clays is different, and the required and acceptable temperatures are also different. How to grasp this balance is also a test of artist's understanding to clays.
It's carved the letters "无事小神仙".
