The originals of Jeroen Bechtold's Yixing
works started their lives as virtual teapots,
only meant to live as pictures or as a 3Dimage in cyberspace.

Thanks to the help of Chinese Master-potter
Gu Wei Fen
these pots became reality.
She made them.


Later

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

Truly, an enormous honour. Of course, Jeroen accepted gracefully and did 3 more designs in the 2 years that followed.

 

These teapots too, started their lives in a computer, as early as 1996.
But the drawings and renderings now were sent by fax to China.
As 'payment' for his work, a very limited amount of the actual pots came back to the Netherlands...


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