A lot of pottery friends first came into contact with purple sand, and then they knew about Jianshui purple pottery under some accidental circumstances, so they used to compare purple pottery with purple sand from the beginning.
As for the difference between purple pottery and purple sand, in fact, we have answered many times before; the price difference between the two is not much discussed, and many ceramic friends still have questions.
Now the price span of purple sand is very large. In other words, it can be said that it is more “chaotic”. From 9.9 packages to nearly 90 million transactions, it’s hard for people to understand.
Taobao sells more than 70 pieces of purple clay teapots with 9 yuan and 9 packets per month
In the spring of 2015, Gu Jingzhou’s stone ladle pot was sold for more than 28 million yuan; in autumn auction a few months later, Gu Jingzhou’s squirrel grape coffee set was sold for 89.6 million yuan.
Therefore, some ceramic friends will feel that the price of Jianshui purple pottery is a little high when they come into contact with Jianshui purple pottery. Even Zisha has a teapot with 9 yuan and 9 parcels of mail. Why does Jianshui purple pottery have a special price of nearly 200 yuan for a very common defective pot, and 300 or 400 pieces are only entry-level ones.
If you know more about it, it’s not surprising. The 9 yuan 9-9-pack purple clay pots are completely produced on the assembly line, and many of them are not from Yixing. Just like the screenshot of Taobao, the delivery place shows Chaozhou.
Many Taoyou don’t know that Chaozhou also produces teapots, which are highly mechanized. The color and texture of Chaozhou pot are very close to purple sand, which is difficult for many people who don’t know much about purple sand.
At present, Jianshui purple pottery is still mainly made by hand, not to mention other technological processes. It is the simplest calligraphy and painting decoration that many Taoists despise. Maybe the calligraphy and painting teachers only pay a few strokes, and the charge is more than 10 yuan. There is no possibility of 9 yuan / 9 package mail.
In fact, pottery friends who are familiar with purple pottery will find that the decorative purple pottery works, whether it is a teapot, a tea pot, or a small cup, have different patterns of calligraphy and painting on each. This feature is also the most unique place of Jianshui purple pottery technology.
As like as two peas, the mechanization and assembly line are not applicable, and the cost can not be reduced to less than 10 yuan. If purple pottery has always maintained its unique Yin and Yang filling, then 9 yuan / 9 package mail may never appear on the price tag of a purple pottery pot.
