  1. Among collectors of fine yixing teapots the "ring" test is cherished by some to identify "true" zuni yixing clay. It is unclear to me to what extent the zuni technology is about the composition of the clay, and to what extent it is about craftsmanship and firing. Many people say this clay is "extinct" and there will never be teapots like those of previous eras. Could this really be the case? I have tried banging on many pots and having the pot on a soft surface is a must. Isn't this a just a test of thickness and how high fired a pot is? I also make these kinds of teapots-- and I always wonder how to recreate the very best aspects of the craft.
