Thinking back to Su Dongpo's time, a pot of good tea, friends of three or five, sitting and talking about the Tao, brushing the brush with ink, the elegant life of the literati was brought into full play.
Today, modern people living in a materialistic society need to return to this realm even more. And this return, perhaps, starts with a cup of tea and a pot...
Today, Tongxinshe Teahouse will bring you a handmade and engraved "Gu Ling" teapot, using top-grade gold Duan Ni, the author is my good friend Huang Dan.
Gu Ling This pot has a capacity of 300cc. The overall shape has the characteristics of a circle in a square, and a square in a circle. It is also more natural and smooth, the spout is pulled out with full strength, the flesh and blood stop evenly, and the bearing is extraordinary.
When you mention gold, what do you think of?
I was thinking of a color of mud.
When Zhou Gaoqi of the Ming Dynasty introduced the famous master Xu Youquan in "Yangxian Teapot Series", he recorded the clay materials he used in the process of learning pots: "The clay colors include begonia red, cinnabar purple, Dingyao white, cold golden yellow, light ink, Agarwood, water green, durian skin, sunflower, pear skin and other names."
Among them, "cold golden yellow" is a kind of color of gold segment mud.
Gold section mud, also known as golden section, is scarce in stock.
It is the weathered layer of Duan mud mine, with clear color and good air permeability, it is the best product in Duan mud.
After firing, it is cold golden yellow, oily enough, easy to soak and nourish.
The particles contained in the mud are relatively large and the structure is loose, so it has good air permeability. It is used to make tea without taking away the aroma of tea and the smell of cooked soup.
After a certain period of soaking, the body of the shaped purple sand ware will gradually show a light caramel color, and the sense of time will gradually add to it.
It can be said that such a well-coated pot made of gold Duan ni is the treasure of tea lovers.
Gu-edge pot, one of the classic shapes of purple sand pots with a circle in the square and a square in the circle. Goblet, two kinds of artifacts in ancient times: one is the name of ancient buildings, generally referring to the tile ridge at the corner of the palace. Wang Guanguo's "School Lin Gujiao": "The so-called Gujiao is the shape of the roof tile ridge forming an angular petal. Therefore, it is called Gujiao."
The goblet-shaped pot was created in the Wanli period of the Ming Dynasty. Li Zhongfang made the goblet-shaped pot with a cross-sectional shape imitating tile ridges, and the Mansheng pot was made of the "square goblet" that imitated the ancient wine vessel. Relevant materials are contained in a Manson-style goblet pot in the collection of the Art Institute of Chicago, USA. The body of the pot is square, and the curved walls gradually converge from bottom to top; the lid is shaped like the body of the pot, with a three-curved bridge-shaped button on it. One side of the body of the pot is engraved with the name of the pot "Gu Leng"; on the other side is the inscription carved by Guo Xiangbo, a friend of Mansheng Mu, "The edge can be molded, but the goblet is not. Take the essence and leave the rough. Xiangbo Ming". The bottom of the pot is sealed with "Amantuo Room" and the handle is printed with "Peng Nian". The four corners of the body of the pot are sharp in the middle, which coincides with the meaning of "goblet" with edges and corners. A pot is a metaphor for the truth of life. Man Sheng used the goblet and edge pot to express his ambition, saying that human affairs in the world should be well-rounded and should not be ambiguous.
