Combining the treasures of two museums, this exhibition demonstrates and explores the artistic achievements and development of Yixing zisha stoneware, as well as its cultural significance and social impact. The exhibits include 168 items from the Bei Shan Tang gift to the Art Museum of The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), and 50 items from the K. S. Lo Collection of the Flagstaff House Museum of Tea Ware, totalling 218 items. The exhibition presents two main themes. The first theme – The Culture and Connoisseurship of the Yixing Teapot – is divided into seven sections: The Story of the Gong Chun Teapot; Yixing Ware Dominates the Collecting Scene; Significance and Influence of Mansheng Teapots; Mengchen Teapots and Gongfu Tea; Elegant Works from the Late Qing Dynastry to Early Republican Era; The Modern Tradition; and Export Yixing Stoneware and Its Influence. The second theme centres on the uses of Yixing stoneware beyond tea culture, with special focus on archaistic vessels, elegant objects and naturalistic sculptures for the scholar’s studio.
