Plum crest design teapot by Shunen

A classic teapot featuring a wealth of detail. Layers of clay have been scraped away to create scallopped panels edged in red shudei. The panels are further embellished with plum blossoms, engraved down to the finest detail. Shunen uses his trademark pinpricks between the flowers to add dimension and the contrast between the smooth body and the textured panels is is truly impressive.
