Tea drinking has been an integral part of Chinese culture for centuries, resulting in a wide range of social customs and material traditions. In addition to tea leaves, water, and heat, the art of drinking tea (chayi) calls for a variety of teaware and utensils - both practical and decorative.

This decorative ceramic teapot is shaped in the traditional double gourd form, meant to resemble a calabash, or bottle gourd, a symbol of health, longevity, and good luck. The hourglass shape is decorated with charming detail, including a ribbed texture on the body, a woody stem for a handle, and leafy vines on the sides. The naturalistic design is finished by a beautiful blue-green glaze that evenly coats the teapot with subtle crazing.
