The arching handle of the teapot’s lid is designed to resemble the distinctive curved roof tiles originally from the Han Dynasty. This style of interlocking roofing tile is still used today.
This teapot is made entirely from a type of Yixing clay known as qing shui ni or “clearwater clay.” The distinctive specific color of qing shui ni clay is a cooler shade of red than other red Yixing types like zhu ni and hong ni, and is a little closer in tone to purple zi ni clay.
