紫陶罐除了存茶还可以存米,储水。

刚接触建水紫陶时,我上网查资料,有一段描述建水紫陶好处的句子令人印象很深:用紫陶炊具盛藏食物,隔夜不馊 ;用紫陶壶泡茶,纯正不变味;用紫陶花瓶插花经久不凋。

一些喜爱紫陶的朋友应该也读到这段话。这并不是这几年才给紫陶做的评价,而是在许多年以前,建水当地人在使用建水紫陶过程中就发现的优点。

Some friends who like purple pottery should also read this passage. This is not just a few years ago to do the evaluation of purple pottery, but many years ago, Jianshui local people in the use of Jianshui purple pottery found the advantages.

但其实他们并不知道为什么会有这些好处,只是结果告诉他们是好的,那个年代也没有人刻意去探寻其中的原因。

But in fact, they don’t know why there are such advantages, but the results tell them that they are good, and no one in that era deliberately explored the reasons.

那个时候建水紫陶泥料制成的瓶瓶罐罐也没有像今天一样主要用于存储茶叶,而是用于存储日常食物,比如大米、水果等等,或者富裕一点的人家用紫陶花瓶插花,才发现了“经久不凋”的现象。

At that time, the bottles and jars made of clay from Jianshui purple pottery were not mainly used to store tea as they are today, but were used to store daily food, such as rice, fruit, etc., or for the richer people to arrange flowers in purple pottery vases. Only then did they discover the phenomenon of “enduring withering”.

今天我们再来说建水紫陶罐,用更好更精致的工艺制作而成的各种罐子,都有意无意加上“茶叶”这两个字,好像就是在说,紫陶罐只能装茶。

Today, let’s talk about Jianshui purple pottery pots. All kinds of jars made with better and more exquisite techniques have intentionally or unintentionally added the word “tea”, as if to say that purple pottery pots can only hold tea.

一个人这么说当然无关紧要,但是大多数人都这么说,就会给人(尤其是刚刚接触紫陶的人)造成一种认识误区,以为建水紫陶就只能装茶,而许多年前那些被当地人们发现的优点渐渐被忽略了。

Of course, it doesn’t matter if one person says so, but most people say so, which will give people (especially those who have just come into contact with purple pottery) a misconception that Jianshui purple pottery can only hold tea, and the advantages discovered by local people many years ago are gradually ignored.

但其实,那些经验而得的优点一直都在,也不该被忽略。换言之,建水紫陶罐在如今,也不要仅仅局限于用来存储茶叶,它还有许多用武之地。

But in fact, the advantages of experience have always been there and should not be ignored. In other words, Jianshui purple pottery pot is not only used to store tea, but also has many uses.

你可以将盖子拿开,在紫陶罐里插一束花,当做花器使用。如果你将它同一个玻璃花瓶或者瓷器花瓶作对比,会发现,同一时间插入同样的花,另外两个花瓶里的花都凋谢了,紫陶瓶里还开着;就算最后花朵凋谢了,拔出花枝,会发现泡在水里的根部还是新鲜的,而另外两个花器里泡在水中的花枝已经腐烂了。

You can take the lid off and put a bunch of flowers in the purple pottery pot and use them as flower utensils. If you compare it with a glass vase or a porcelain vase, you will find that the flowers in the other two vases have withered and the purple pottery vase is still open when you insert the same flowers at the same time. Even if the flowers wither and pull out the branches, you will find that the roots in the water are still fresh, while the branches in the other two flower vessels are rotten.

你可以将紫陶罐作为一个米缸使用,会发现,大米比放在编织袋里可以保质更长的时间;而且看起来就像小时候家里的米缸,更加返璞归真。

You can use the purple clay pot as a rice jar, and you will find that the rice can last longer than it is in a woven bag; moreover, it looks like the rice jar at home when you were a child, which is more natural.

你也可以将紫陶罐作为水果缸使用,会发现,在没有冰箱的情况下,它是比较好的保持水果品质的容器。

You can also use the purple pottery jar as a fruit jar. You will find that it is a better container to keep the quality of fruits without a refrigerator.

你还可以将紫陶罐作为各种干粮、干果存储器使用……

You can also use the purple pottery jar as a storage for all kinds of dry grains and fruits

现在人们追寻这些好处的原因,比如说建水本地泥料含有的矿质元素,制成后的紫陶缸具有透气性等等,或许还只是解释了一点点原因。

Now people are looking for the reasons for these benefits, such as the mineral elements contained in the local mud in Jianshui, and the air permeability of the purple pottery jar after being made, etc., which may only explain a little.

但这些都不重要,普通消费者只要知道紫陶罐已经有了这些优点,那就尽管用去存储自己想存的东西就可以了。探寻原因,那是科学家的事情。

But these are not important. As long as ordinary consumers know that purple pottery pots have these advantages, they can just use them to store what they want. It’s a scientist’s business to find out why.
