人对自己喜欢的事物总是想方设法刨根问底,经常有人加我微信问我各种问题,其中很多都是属于建水紫陶相关的细节问题,这样的问题,大部分我可以做出回答,少数需要查找资料或者拿起手边的一把壶就可以做出自己的一些解释。

People always try their best to get to the bottom of their favorite things. People often ask me various questions through wechat, many of which are related to Jianshui purple pottery. Most of these questions can be answered by me. A few need to find information or take a pot at hand to make some explanations.

但有一个问题我确实久久无法回答:你为什么喜欢建水陶?

But there is a question I really can’t answer for a long time: why do you like Jianshui pottery?

纯手工?残缺美?独特彩填?无釉磨光?适合泡茶?适合存茶醒茶?……似乎都不能回答这个问题,因为以上的每个理由都略显牵强。于是我们就要思考建水陶何以打动越来越多的人。

Handmade? Incomplete beauty? Unique color filling? Unglazed finish? Suitable for making tea? Suitable for storing tea and waking up tea? … seems unable to answer this question, because each of the above reasons is slightly far fetched. So we have to think about how Jianshui pottery moved more and more people.

纯手工的东西总是打动人,因为这其中包含了创作者的汗水和思想。试想一堆普通的泥巴经过技艺高超的匠人一步一步做成一件精美的紫陶壶,有幸记录这个过程也是一种享受。

Handmade things are always moving, because it contains the sweat and ideas of the creator. Imagine a pile of common mud, which is made into a beautiful purple pottery pot step by step by a skilled craftsman. It is also a pleasure to have the honor to record this process.

另外,纯手工意味着慢的节奏和不可预知的变化,慢节奏填补现代人的心理需求,不可预知的变化则表示可能有惊喜。心理作用让人喜爱手工的东西。

In addition, pure manual means slow rhythm and unpredictable changes. Slow rhythm fills the psychological needs of modern people, and unpredictable changes indicate that there may be surprises. The psychological effect makes people like handmade things.

残缺美要避免变成贴狗皮膏药,需要独具匠心。从锦灰堆中演化而来的残帖,虽有所简化,但对于艺人的艺术修养要求不曾减少。因此我们经常见到,两件同是残帖的作品,一件给人感觉残缺、覆盖有讲究,整体效果古色古香,耐人寻味;另一件给人凌乱、随便之感,不如不贴。

Incomplete beauty needs originality to avoid becoming a plaster. Although the remnant calligraphy evolved from the pile of brocade and ashes has been simplified, the requirements for artists’ artistic accomplishment have not been reduced. Therefore, we often see two pieces of work that are both fragmentary and covered with exquisite details. The overall effect is antique and intriguing; the other is messy and casual, so it is better not to stick them.

湿坯彩填在之前已经有过交流,这道工艺结合了拉坯匠人、书画家、刻工、色彩工、填泥工,一步做不好,整体效果就会大受影响,甚至功底不好就会填成另一幅画面,完全背离了书画家想要表达的意境。

There has been communication before. This process combines the blank drawing craftsman, calligrapher, engraver, colorist and plasterer. If one step is not done well, the overall effect will be greatly affected, and even if the skill level is not good, it will be filled into another picture, which completely deviates from the artistic conception that calligraphers and painters want to express.

无釉磨光看似简单,其实不易。在高速转动的轮盘上打磨一件器皿,要保持器皿打磨效果,且还要不损坏器皿,不是一件容易的事。亮光效果更需要无数次的操作,要技术,更要耐心、细心。

Unglazed polishing seems simple, but it is not easy. It is not easy to grind a vessel on a high-speed rotating disc to maintain the polishing effect and not to damage the vessel. Lighting effect needs countless operations, technology, patience and care.

所以建水陶的每一步都透着“匠心”,因此你喜欢建水陶,其实是喜欢建水陶所呈现的“匠人精神”。

Therefore, every step of Jianshui pottery is full of “ingenuity”. Therefore, if you like Jianshui pottery, you actually like the “craftsman spirit” presented by Jianshui pottery.

“匠人精神”是个热门词,我不想轻易去谈论,因为在当下的中国,谈论“匠人精神”显得过于奢侈。自诩匠人的大多就只是自诩,真正的匠人少有人知晓,因为真正的匠人不会自我标榜。

“Craftsman’s spirit” is a hot word. I don’t want to talk about it easily, because in today’s China, it seems too luxurious to talk about “craftsman spirit”. Most of the people who boast themselves are just self boasting. Few of the real craftsmen know that, because real craftsmen don’t boast themselves.

建水陶有匠人吗?有的,他们整日埋头创作。
