In the face of a pile of tea cans with the same price, many friends will have difficulty in choosing. How to choose the ones that are satisfied with all aspects from a pile of tea cans can be done with the help of the following tips:
一、 Check whether the workmanship of the whole and several key parts is qualified
First, check the cover and turn it inside and outside to see if there are obvious scratches and cracks; focus on the top and edge of the button. Cracking and deformation are common defects.
二、 Check the tank body for obvious scratches and scratches
Purple pottery tea pot is usually factory style, but it is all made by hand. We can’t ask for the perfection of artificial production. Some slight traces are inevitable, which makes it precious. However, some obvious scratches can be controlled and avoided according to the current technology level. Most of the time, it can be avoided only if the craftsman is careful.
In addition, there will be a wire wiping step during grinding. It is easy to leave some scratch lines, most of which are within the acceptable range, but sometimes it can be too serious, which requires special attention. During the inspection, the can body can be rotated in turn for inspection, and the large tea pot can be divided into upper and lower parts for inspection.
三、 Check whether there are bubbles in the tank and whether the bottom of the tank is cracked
Occasionally, when the pot is being fired, bubbles will appear or even burst, and the whole piece will fall off. In addition, the edge of the bottom of the tank is also prone to defects, and it is not easy to see, so the inspection should be very careful.
四、 Check the decorative block surface and decoration content
The problem of decorative block surface is the filling edge. If the filling process is not in place, continuous cracks will appear on the edge after firing.
What is easy to be ignored is whether the calligraphy and painting match each other. At present, most of the decoration of purple pottery still continues the tradition: one side of calligraphy, the other side of painting, calligraphy and painting content echo, coexist on a piece of purple pottery, so it looks harmonious.
However, many tea pots are used as currency, either because the decorators are careless, or because they don’t understand the corresponding methods of calligraphy and painting, which often leads to the embarrassment that the two do not match each other, or even the wind, horse and cattle.
For example, one side of the painting is a secluded orchid, while the other side is written with the word “rich and noble”. The cultural meaning of orchid represents women’s temperament, such as orchid, hybridity, orchid heart, gentle and elegant men, indifferent to fame and wealth. Popular flower language is: noble, elegant, beautiful, virtuous, indifferent. The collocation of the word “rich and noble” is at least inaccurate in terms of flowery language.
