The name of this style, Zhu Yuan Yu Run, means "roundness of a pearl, smooth luster of jade."  It is made form Jiang Po Ni Yixing clay, Jiang Po Ni translating to "the clay that falls to the bottom of the hill."  

This teapot was "half-handmade" in Dingshu Shan from authentic Jiang Po Ni.  

("Yixing" is the name of the large city nearby, while Dingshu Shan, or Dingshu Mountain, is the location where the clay is mined and generally worked, and is the location of the old Dragon Kiln, where all Yixing, or "Zisha" as it's generally known in China, used to be fired.  "Half-handmade" is the term used to describe teapots whose body was formed using a wooden mold, while the outer detail-work was done entirely by hand.  In the west, this would be considered "hand-made.")
