This is a modern interpretation of a classic Yixing form. However, the pictures are somewhat kitschy.
Inscriptions on the bottom,
雲天外   - Clouds outside of the sky
作至 孟臣 - Made by Mengchen

Hui Mengchen 恵孟臣 1621-1644 
A famous potter from Yixing during the Tianqi period of the Ming Dynasty. He was well known for
his pear-shaped teapots.
