Jianshui is a teaware producing city located in the South East of Yunnan. It is renowned for its dark ceramics, made of a blend of five different locally sourced clays. Unlike Yixing, Jianshui only started to produce teaware recently. The craftsmanship for fine teapots have developed along the Puerh tea boom, since the mid-2000s. The calligraphy and paintings you can see are not drawings on the surface but colored clay inserted into carved spaces.
This Autumn 2019 collection was composed by Yubai from several potters based in Jianshui.
