"This pot started off as a hump-of-clay during the symposium. I made a sketch in solid clay and it was Hai Hua Hui and Zhong Xiao Gen who made the actual teapots with this sketch on their table. (you can see it happening on the video on youtube)

The craftmanship of these two, as well as their analytical thinking was a great joy to witness. Skills I wish I had!"

In total 2 pots were made. One (a two-coloured pot) went to Taiwan, the other one is the one on this page.
