Tao you left a message in last night’s article: “there are thousands of good purple pottery pots, and only one or two of them are related to you.”. I agree with that.
I found a cup two days ago. I like it very much. Since I came into contact with purple pottery, I have seen a lot of cups of various prices, but none of them is particularly unforgettable.
In fact, I have seen many similar cups. I didn’t pay special attention to them when I took them that day, because they were so familiar with them. When I took it back to take a picture, I was deeply attracted by it. I held it in my hand and watched it carefully. The more I saw it, the more I liked it.
In terms of capacity, the handshake is moderate; in terms of color, it is not the white that most ceramic friends like; in terms of decoration, it is very simple, and with the seal, there are only three colors; the shape is not difficult, and it can be made by a craftsman with a little bit of casting skills.
A lot of works, looking at each part separately, are plain, but when they are combined in a proper way, they will emit a brand-new aura. Maybe if someone holds it in his hand, he won’t feel good or attract him, but this is exactly what I like. This is probably what we often say about eye edge.
Once chatting with Tao you, someone was recommending something to her. I inserted a sentence “because you are a good customer”. She replied with a smile, “it’s easy to cheat”. I said that first of all, you should take a fancy to that thing. Otherwise, how can others “cheat” you.
So sometimes I feel that, no matter how much people in the purple pottery industry know about purple pottery and how they will choose “good” Purple pottery, in the face of thousands of different ceramic friends, our work is actually very limited.
What we call “good” Purple pottery is only good in terms of our own standards and our own aesthetic point of view. In other people’s eyes, we may despise it. In the Internet age of looking at photo trading, what we can do is to select and make fine works as carefully as possible. In other aspects, Tao you has to decide for himself. This is especially true of purple pottery works which pay attention to decoration.
Multi angle photos can accurately convey the shape, color, painting and calligraphy decoration and engraving effect of the works. In these aspects that really affect Tao you’s personal sensory enjoyment, we should never try to take the place of others’ aesthetic appreciation.
Or the old saying: a thousand readers, a thousand Hamlets. Choose purple pottery, like the most important, on the edge of the best eye.
