How do people who don’t understand Zisha pot look at the pot?

The pot person has the same appearance, and both the shape and the god. How do people who don’t understand pots look at pots? Look at it as if you were looking at a person!

People have skeletons, muscles, and skin, and kettles have lines and contours. The artist uses the sketching technique to directly take pictures, and the eyes, hands, and heart correspond to the creation, and the lines are even, flowing, looping, and twisting, conveying the volume, shape and life of the pot.

A person with a straight chest, head up, and broad shoulders is called “spirit” because the center of gravity of the skeleton is raised upwards . Whether a pot has spirit or not depends on the skeleton. The so-called “beauty is in the bones but not the skin”, the skeleton is well set up, and the spirit of the pot is completely different.

The main body of the spirit, mainly on the shoulders and chest, is visually reflected in the part of the kettle body “Angle arc”, when the angle is partially folded, it is like a person’s shoulders stretched, and the center of gravity is raised. If the arc of the folded angle is shallow and weak, and the shoulders shrink, the bones are thin.

If the reward is based on the five senses, what are the five senses of the pot?

One: Spout

The mouth, handle and button of the purple clay pot are usually called human-like features by pot makers, and the size and proportions cannot be ignored. The shape of the mouth, handle and button should be coordinated with the shape of the pot body, and should not be too flamboyant or too weak. The types of spouts can be roughly divided into one-bend, two-bend, three-bend, straight and flow.

The shape of a good spout should be suitable for the change of the water flow curve. The length and thickness of the spout should be installed on the body of the kettle. location must be appropriate.

The inner wall of the spout must be unobstructed and uniform in thickness. When pouring tea, the air is circulated and a certain pressure is formed. There are so many ways for the small spout, and the only way to do it is to keep improving.

Second, the water outlet

The water outlet hole of the Zisha pot is not easy to attract people’s attention. Whether the water is smooth or not, the water outlet is very important. Most of the early Zisha pots were imagined as a single hole, but this is not entirely the case. The water outlet hole of the Zisha teapot should change with the development of the tea roasting method and the change of tea drinking customs.

In the beginning, the purple clay pot had a single hole, which was easily blocked by tea leaves, but at the latest in the late Ming Dynasty, There are already some Zisha pots with money-shaped water holes, but I don’t know why they are not popular. It was not until the late Qing Dynasty that the water holes of Zisha pots were changed to multi-holes. During the “Cultural Revolution”, a batch of Zisha pots were exported to Japan. In the pot, the water outlet is designed as a hemispherical mesh. This prevents the tea leaves from clogging when brewing tea.

Three, the handle of the pot

The handle of the purple clay pot has a handle, There are three types of horizontal handle and lifting beam. Among them, the form of end handle is the most common, which is the traditional handle of the pot. Today, the more common one is the ring handle. The horizontal handle is the angle between the handle and the spout of the pot at 90 degrees. , has been produced in Changsha kilns as early as the Tang Dynasty, and it can be seen that it was more popular in the Tang Dynasty. Nowadays, horizontal-handled pots are rarely seen in China, but Japanese and Koreans often use horizontal-handled pots when they taste tea.< /span>

beam-lifting pot The type has existed since ancient times, and it can be found in primitive pottery and bronze ware. There are two types of lifting beams in Zisha teapots, one is a hard lifting beam and the other is a soft lifting beam.

Fourth, Pot Foot

The bottom foot of the purple clay teapot can be divided into three types: one-touch bottom, plus bottom (circle foot) and nail foot.

One bottom is a unique style of the bottom of the purple clay pot. The thin bottom is embedded in the body of the pot, and the bottom is concave. Because purple sand does not need to be glazed, there is no concern of sticking to the bottom or saggar when firing, so the simplest, most convenient and most delicate method can be adopted.

When looking at the pot, we can also think about it from a different perspective, look at the pot as a person, and see how this “person” is in shape. The five bodies are not coordinated, basically It can be determined whether its shape is in place. Looking at a pot is like looking at a person. To see the charm of a pot, it depends on whether the “five senses” of the pot are combined with spirit!

Purple clay teapot is like a human being, it not only builds the world with flesh and blood, but also pursues the beauty of Fengshen, and uses harmony with meaning Totally connected. In this process, a lot of opposition and unity are realized, such as the order of the host and the host, the change of balance, the beauty of rhythm, the straightness of the big and the small, etc. The essence of this series of opposition and unity is the tension of aesthetics.

The classics of ancient Chinese philosophy, from the day Zisha was born, together with it, shaped the immortal oriental legend. “Good learning also follows the rules.” In learning, don’t be smart, you need to know the scope of a piece of equipment, and don’t confuse “Feng Ma”. Only when you thoroughly understand the rules and regulations, and you can follow the rules in both vertical and horizontal directions, can you be able to make changes, new stories, and strange stories.
