During the symposium Jeroen Bechtold was asked to design some more pots for Yixing.

An extraordinary thing (as to the Chinese, China is the centre of the world), to allow a foreigner to have this enormous honour.
In the 2 years that followed, Jeroen designed 3 more teapots, of which this is one.

below you can see the digital images that were sent by fax to China. This teapot was made, using thes images...

This pot too, started its life in a computer, as early as 1997.
This is a fun-pot, and certainly not as serious as Jeroen's regular designs, albeit that there is fun in all his designs.
As 'payment' for his work, Jeroen received a very limited amount of the actual pots that were shipped to the Netherlands...


They are immaculate, designed by a master, handmade by a master, 
they are very rare and thus expensive...

Jeroen Bechtold  Yixing Series  1997

HORSERIDER


Signed by stamps, incl. designstamp      

The really limited series. As far as I know, only something like 10 pots have been made in total. The ones that remained in China have found their proud owners.
I have 2 in total, 1 of them can be sold.

some background with this teapot

The digital images I still have that were faxed to China in 1997.

Of course the coloured pics below, were rendered in black&white, before faxing.

From these pictures, the HORSERIDER teapot was made.

3D renderings of the Horserider teapot.

 

In 1997, it took the big SGI-indigo computer a whole night to render one image like the one on the far right.
High res @1000x700 pixels roughly!
