Lately, I have been more interested in the five tradition shapes. I am not sure if this is true, from what I read, the pigeon style was created by Gu Jingzhou from modification of the shuiping. From the contrast of this pot, the body reminded me of those antique Chinese vase.

Gezui isn’t one of the five though… as you say it’s a more recent invention. Five are Bala(e), Biandeng, Xishi, Taijian and Bianyuan.

Yup, the pigeon style is not one of the five. What is Bianyuan? I thought Ru Bing (肉餅) was the last one.

Ah yes you’re right, Roubian is the last one. Bianyuan is flat and round, quite rare and expensive. But it’s the only 60s shape I’m still considering to get at some point. It’s very pretty in person.

Healthy glow...

@DailyTX this is an ancestor of Bianyuan, the 60s version has a flat lit and is of course infinitely more ugly than this fine specimen of Andrew.
