Sheng Sha Ben Shan Zhu Ni 生砂本山朱泥, most difficult ZhuNi type to work on, lowest kiln success rate, yet worked into the difficult Segmental-Corollary Class. Special Acquisition.

Dearest Friends,

Presenting to you:
*生砂* 本山朱泥 *Sheng Sha* Ben Shan Zhu Ni, this being the most difficult ZhuNi type to work on, amongst all ZhuNi types.

Yes the most difficult ZhuNi type to work on: more difficult than XiaoMeiYao ZhuNi, ZhaoZhuangZhuNi, and "Normal" Ben Shan ZhuNi.

And yet, this artisan not just bravely did it, he embarked upon the Segmental-Corollary type class pot and succeeded with this most difficult Sheng Sha Ben Shan Zhu Ni!

This type of "Sheng" Sha ZhuNi, literally translated as "Raw" ZhuNi (just like raw/sheng pu er🌿🌿🌿) , is and looks yes, very "raw", akin to: Qing Shui Ni (a type of ZiNi) which, after mining out from the site, weathered down, adding water and afterwhich swiftly the clay slab will be made and pounded, cut, parts formed, shaped, and fired.

The big issue with Sheng Sha Zhu Ni is:

1) Getting Sheng Sha Ben Shan Zhu Ni to form up into shape, is the most difficult amongst all ZhuNi types,

2) ZhuNi success rates out of the kiln is already the lowest of all ZiSha ore types (lower than ZiNi and DuanNi).  And yet "Sheng Sha" Ben Shan Zhu Ni is the lowest of the Zhu Ni types!  So there you have it, the lowest of the lowest kiln-success rate:

Sheng Sha Ben Shan Zhu Ni.

1)  Sheng Sha Ben Shan Zhu Ni's extremely beautiful visuals.  The colour is characteristic and unique for its type: "less garish, less bright".
Its colour is the understated gray-ish red with the rightfully renowned: 古韵 "ancient charm" look,

2)  It exhibits high porosity due to its heavier sandy composite,

3)  Nurtures superbly, the nurturing journey is one to behold for the lucky owner of a Sheng Sha Ben Zhu Ni:

Its desirability rests in:

1) Maximum difficulty of forming,

2) Extreme rarity because most craftsmen and Artists avoid using it to form pots,

3) Its especial and unmistakable visuals,

4) Its practicality of use = superb nurturing journey with patina formation,

5) The extreme skill of the Artisan, him daringly embarking to make a Segmental-Corollary pot out of the most difficult of ZiSha types to form.

6) He sends out a strong message by making a Segmental-Corollary pot shape with this clay, as this is THE pot shape that maximises the surface area of the Inner Walls with the tea within, as the ultimate augmentation of this clay's position as the top porosity ZhuNi clay.

Understated dark vermillion red, high porosity, Segmental-Corollary class. 内敛,古韵。
