The Rong Tian teapot shape takes inspiration from the Big Belly Buddha, a portrayal of Buddha with a large stomach that originates from Buddhist teachings. The name “Rong Tian” translates to “stomach big enough to hold the universe,” referencing the Buddha’s capacious belly representing his mind’s limitless ability to understand the world.
This shape was first created by the renowned Chinese arts and crafts master Lv Yaochen. Early versions of the Rong Tian teapot had a relatively squat profile, while later iterations became taller in design. Conveying the spirit and charm of this shape is quite difficult, requiring the teapot maker to thoughtfully embody it. A slightly short neck is added to the full-bodied pot, and the lid is made into a hemispherical dome, adding a touch of rustic playfulness.
The pouring ability of this shape is excellent, making it truly convenient and comfortable to use. Visually it conveys a sense of steady dignity and magnanimity, with depths perceptible beneath its simple elegance.
