Form and function combine in these wonderful Japanese teapots.

The first recorded Yixing teapot was made by the famous potter Gong Chun in 1513 AD in the town of Yixing in Jiangsu Province. They were immediately used by monks, officials and the literati because of their simple forms, superior heat retention and brewing characteristics. They are hand crafted from dense purple clay by people who have passed down the skill in making these teapots for generations.
