Topic: Yixing Or Not
I am new to this forum.
I bought a teapot from China Town (Chicago).
The craftsmanship is not very good but I love Fang Gu Style.
It similar to sesame clay maybe called Zhi Ma Ni, A dark beige like pot with a grainy feel.
This pot seaps tea through the clay, it sweats. This brings to question why I see my other poats texture is different from inside to out. Aren't zisha pots suppose to be unglazed?
Could I also have a contact for yixing teapt identification, ete, clay seals artists?
Also bought a pot made by (so he said) Xu Hantang, How can I authenticate?
Thanks much for any help
will add photos when I figure out how.
