CHEN Mingyuan 陈鸣远


"人间珠玉安足取 ,岂如阳羡溪头一丸土。




How many peerless treasures can you take earthly; yet they worth less than a pill of soil from a creek bank in Yangxian.

Don't you see old Lun Bian cut wood into wheel in those days; Ain't you see that Zi Qing's work was made in heaven.

Since ancient times, how many people can have such skills; Mingyuan Mingyuan no one come even close to you.

---- by WANG Wenbo of Kangxi reign of Qing dynasty. Translation by George Wang, Ph.D.

Just confirmed this teapot has a great clay - It got refreshed completely after usage of just one day. Generally speaking, calligraphy is hard to imitate.

Comparison with the one from the book:

Similarity: shape and craftsmanship, clay, calligraphy

Difference: the one from the book has a more detailed handle, and a repaired knob.
