Appreciation Teapot Five Elements

Yixing Zisha Taoist originated from the Northern Song Dynasty and experienced the development achievements of the two generations of the pottery and art of the Ming and Qing dynasties. As the outstanding tea culture pottery of China, today it is not only natural, but also a natural aroma of the mountain sand. The successor, and the tea can hold the tea ceremony "color, smell, taste" spirit. As the tea culture and the pottery culture blend with each other, they infiltrate each other and influence each other. Today's pot art is rich and perfect. However, some teapots can bid for several hundred thousand yuan in the auction market. Some shops selling tea sets also have tens of yuan worth of teapots. The same is the teapot, why is the price so different? How to appraise and collect the unique purple sand pottery boutique in the history of pottery and ceramics, great knowledge. For a teapot, it is mainly appreciated in terms of "mud, shape, work, intention, and use."

The first is "mud." The reason why the teapot is named after the world is its superiority in the production of raw materials, purple clay. There are many kinds of Yixing Zisha clay, so the color of Zisha tea set we see is also colorful. Natural Zisha Mud has red mud (or cinnabar), purple mud, mountain green mud (being beige), azure mud (gold in mud, green color when mining, very rare) and sand adjustment mud Therefore, it should be based on the texture of the soil, rather than the color to distinguish between good and bad. Zisha feels different from other clays. Touching a purple sand object is like touching red bean paste—fine but not greasy. A teapot, the merits of mud is an important factor in judging its merits.

The second is "shape." The shape of the teapot is the most abundant among the various types of vessels in existence, and it is praised as "there is not a one-by-one, round-in-one phase." The teapot is an integral part of the entire tea culture. The artistic concept it pursues should be the “indifferent to peace and unorthodox” pursued by the tea ceremony. Ancient Shu is in perfect harmony with this atmosphere.

The third is "work." Zisha Hu in the "work", blending the bold freehand brushwork of Chinese painting. In the three elements of point, line, and surface, like the brushwork painting, it turns to bend and deflate. In the face, the light must be light, and the hair must be hair; the line must be straight, and the song must be straight; the point, the square must be square, and the circle must be round, with no ambiguity. According to the special requirements of the teapot molding process, the spout and the handle must be in a straight line, and the components should be balanced. The combination of the spout and the lid must be tight.

The fourth is "meaning." The "meaning" mentioned here refers to the artistic conception of the pot, and it can also be said to be ideological. Any piece of art that can be called art should be ideological, otherwise it is tantamount to having no soul, and a work without a soul, no matter how magnificent its surface, can not be considered a good work. A pot of “meaning” is not only pleasing to the eye, but also allows people to imagine, produce emotions, and produce ideas.

The fifth is "use." Here, "use" refers to the daily use of the pot, that is, functional beauty. In other words, the pot must be handy when it is used.
