Chen Long Black Xishi PotFloating Leaves Tea
Chen Long is a multi generational Taiwanese artisan whose work we love. This pot was thrown from Japanese clay. This is the only pot of Mr Chen's that we brought back that is not made of red clay. He works with Japanese red and black clay. We got a chance to visit Mr Chen Long on our latest visit to Taiwan. He is very humble and does exquisite work. The shape is called Xishi ("shee shur") after one of the beauties of classical China.
