    Here's a little ( 7" long by 2 3/4" high) teapot. It has a 'swirl' glaze and is marked just below the hollow handle (see pics). Any feedback on this piece is most welcome.Thanks-Bosko Tpot1.jpg Tpot2.jpg Tpot3.jpg Tpot4.jpg Tpot5.jpg

    The characters are 陶仙 if that helps.
    陶 = pottery, and 仙 = imortal being (also used by recluse literati, monks, artisans living in isolation in the mountains, hence the character being composed of the elements "person / 人 /亻" on the left and "mountain / 山" on the right. )

    Jay Bee- You're language knowledge is amazing ! It sounds like poetry from The Book of Changes. You know for 40 years whenever a great change/decision is coming about,we always consult The I Ching's Hexagrams.We also do lots and lots of research,if an impasse is encountered, we toss the Oracle's yarrow sticks (or pennies !).
