Chen Xu was born into a family of Jianyang tea merchants, but grew up in Beijing. This distance, both psychic and physical, engendered a certain nostalgia for and interest in the tea leaves and Jian ware of his ancestral home. He was an early and prominent proponent of Jian ware, and returned from Beijing to Jianyang in 2014. Since then, he has received over a dozen awards for his Jian bowls.

His work has been collected by the British Museum, the Victoria and Albert museum, the Famen Temple Museum, and the Osaka Museum of Oriental Ceramics.
