This Qin Quan TaoTie was made by a potter from Yixing YinchenStudio. This teapot use zini&Lvni. It’s fully-handmade.
Qin quan teapot is made as the appearance of Weight (秤砣) when First Emperor of Qin unified the six states. So it's the teapot that represents the power and majesty. The textures and lines outside look so wonderful. We called them Taotie(name of a ferocious legendary animal)lines. Taotie in China is also a very powerful and strong animal. So Taotie lines are suitable for Qin quan teapot. The lid and handle are both creative by artist, not traditional ones. They are artist's understanding to Qin quan and fit the whole design well. The curved spout is also special and powerful.
Fen jiang (粉浆) craft, which existed in the Qing Dynasty, is a decorative technique. It is used fired clay, which is ground into powder after it is completely dried, and then mixed with a fixed proportion of water, finally paint outside or inside the teapots. We called "using clay to decorate with clay(以泥饰泥). Fen jiang craft can make teapot good visual effects and layering.
