Yixing Clay is a type of clay from the region near the city of Yixing in Jiangsu Province, China, used in Chinese Pottery since the Song Dynasty (960–1279) Yixing clay was first mined around China's Lake Taihu. From the 17th century on, Yixing wares were commonly exported to Europe. The finished stoneware, which is used for teaware and other small items, is usually red or brown in colour. Also known as zisha (宜興紫砂) ware, they are typically left unglazed and use clays that are very cohesive and can form coils, slabs and most commonly slip casts. These clays can also be formed by throwing. The best-known wares made from Yixing clay are Yixing Clay Teapots, tea pets, and other tea-ware.
