Cheng Wei is a leader among the next generation of modern ceramic artists based in Jingdezhen. Wei has studied pottery and the art of tea ("cha dao") for over 15 years. He and his wife own their own studio where they are now training younger potters.
While Cheng Wei specializes in hand-made teapots, he also frequently crafts gong dao bei and teacups. Currently, Cheng Wei is innovating in new glazes and textures that bring out subtle, muted colors on the traditional forms of teaware.
