Wang Chao Peng 王超鹏 ~ Yi Xing Zi Sha Number One Kai Shu Style Calligraphy Engraving Master 宜兴紫砂楷书刻绘第一高人。

Han Qi Lou is very famous and is a supremely respected figure in YiXing ZiSha.  The facts are thus: Han Qi Lou is a famed Calligrapher, and he is born in YiXing.  However, YiXing ZiSha for all its wonders and highest ceramic professional skill involved, was not well known outside of China before the 80s.  Han Qi Lou felt the duty to help his own YiXing folks.  In the 1980s he started bringing Gu Jing Zhou, Jiang Rong out of YiXing to promote ZiSha Art to the rest of the world.   Yes, indeed, he IS THE person who led and guided Gu Jing Zhou, Jiang Rong et al, overseas, in order to help these Artists spread and promote their works to the world.  Mr Han Qi Lou is seated in the center of our file photo:

Speak to any YiXing folk, and they regard Han Qi Lou as one of the major esteemed father figures who helped to propel ZiSha Art to the world and brought it to huge prominence, appreciation and recognition from the world of Ceramic Arts and the tea community at large.

Calligraphy Master Han Qi Lou's son-in-law is: Wang Chao Peng 王超鹏。

These are his personal casual and candid photos he has with us:

In Chinese Calligraphy, Kai Shu (Kai style) is the most demanding.  There are five kinds of Calligraphy styles, e.g. Kai Shu, Zuan Shu, Li Shu, Cao Shu, Xing Shu.

The saying goes, if I were to hand you a page of Xing Shu to write, you can finish it in ten minutes, but if I were to hand you a page of Kai Shu to write, you may be sweating and puffing for half a day and still don't get one page out.

The Way of Kai Style is extremely demanding.   First you must have good upbringing:

Heart must be Quiet and Still with Integrity,

Body must be Straight,

Hands must be Steady,

Breathing must be Smooth with Stamina.

All these must exist together in the Master Calligrapher in order to perform and write a stanzas of words which are COHESIVE, from start to finish.
From the First character to the Last character.

HIS MOST OUTSTANDING work which he is most famous for, is:
The Heart Sutra Small Kai Style.

This is the reason why very few modern great Calligraphers major in Kai Style.  It is the most demanding. 

And, Master Wang has to work on a curved surface that is not flat on the table but slanted or even perpendicular to the table.  Onerous.  This is why Master Wang is THE ZENITH ONE.  And he is extremely humble, and his price for performing this engraving Art for our ZiSha works, is not exorbitant.

His price ranges from $800 to $1950 for most works (price proportional to the number of words you propose to have),

and $2512 for ZiSha's Fraternity Top:
Full Heart Sutra ~ Minute Kai Style Engraving wonder.
