Therefore, it is not a defect or a serious problem that the color of the flap is different from that of other parts, but that almost every piece of purple pottery has to pass through the whole mouth, which is one of the obvious and common characteristics of Jianshui purple pottery.
Our warehouse is surrounded by workshops for making purple pottery. I know the hard work of pottery makers. Sometimes we stay in the warehouse until 11:12 p.m. and find that they are still working overtime to make things.
My hometown pan Weichen, a very powerful, conscientious and down-to-earth young artist, brought his latest works to me this morning, so that I can enjoy them from the bottom of my heart. But behind good works, there is often hard work. I learned from the chat that during the production of these works, he went to the studio at 8:00 a.m. every day, and he had to do it around 11:00 p.m. even though he was working all day long and didn’t seem tired, he still felt very tired after returning home.
And the teacher whose cornea fell off, I also know something about it. Several artists around me have asked him to do decoration, calligraphy and painting, engraving and filling. We have wechat with each other. We often see him send news at one or two o’clock in the morning, holding a newly decorated ceramic tile in his hand and saying, “we’ve been working till now!” By the way, on his birthday, after the decoration, the dynamic time is 2:25 a.m
This reminds me of two other ceramic artists who have serious occupational diseases now.
One of them is a young master who specializes in casting. However, when I saw him casting, I found that his head would rotate with the turning pottery. I found out, but he didn’t realize that he was just focusing on how to create a satisfying shape. It seems that the movement of turning head is not controlled by him, and he may not find it by himself, but as long as the billet is drawn, the head will automatically rotate with the green body.
The other is a professional decorator, who has been carving decorative patterns on pottery blocks with his head biased for a long time. As a result, his head has always been habitually inclined to one side. Even when he is not working, even if he subconsciously corrects it, he still slightly deviates to one side, which seems to have been unable to change.
The process of making purple pottery in Jianshui is complex, and each of them will make the pottery makers form some professional diseases. Today, I accidentally talked about this topic, and I felt quite emotional. Pottery making is a great job. I hope that every pottery maker can pay attention to his health.
