Art is never static. On the basis of the predecessors, how to make the traditional craftsmanship go one step further is something that generations of craftsmen have constantly studied and struggled for. The creation of Zisha is also true. Today, I want to bring you a lesson. The golden section clay Si Ting purple clay teapot, with a capacity of 110ml, inherits the classic charm. This pot is made by Xia Qing and uses golden section clay, also known as golden section clay, generally referred to as golden section for short. It is named "Golden Section" because it is a clay with the purest texture and color closest to the original color of gold. It is the best quality clay in this mountain section. Zhou Gaoqi of the Ming Dynasty "Yangxian Ming" When the famous artist Xu Youquan was introduced in "The Pot Series", he recorded the clay materials he used in the process of learning the pot: "The clay colors include begonia red, cinnabar purple, Dingyao white, cold golden yellow, light ink, agarwood, water green, durian skin, The names of sunflower yellow and shiny pear skin.” The "cold golden color" mentioned by Zhou Gaoqi is one of the fineness of the golden section. The original ore of the golden section is produced at the dragon body of Huanglong Mountain. In the trough, it is caused by the overturning of the ore body, the burial is shallow, and the mud layer is also shallow. The thickness is generally only 10-20 cm, and the thicker is no more than 50 cm. It is distributed in a chain shape and is mixed with other mud blocks. It is difficult to mine and can only be carefully selected. The raw ore is light green and pure golden yellow after firing. It is oily enough. It is easy to be slurried after soaking. After a long period of soaking, the yellow becomes more and more yellow, and the reddish brown spots are reddish. The other sections of mud are black. According to the different proportions of different components in the symbiotic ore, the color of the ore layers in different mining areas is different. The most eye-catching is the "cold golden" color. The gold section of Well 4 has the color "cold "Golden", the yellow with gold, the color is warm,
the sand feels like gilt, like the color of the emperor, this teapot is the golden section of the No. 4 well.
