A tiny teapot from Qing China

A conversation between Dr. Kristen Brennan and Dr. Steven Zucker in front of a Zisha “Ru Ding” teapot made by Yang Pengnian, with Chen Mansheng mark, Yixing ware, c. late 18th–early 19th century (Shanghai Museum of Art)

Note: the work was created with slabs of clay and then worked on a wheel. The term “thrown” may be misleading.
