Compared with other ceramics, Jianshui pottery pays more attention to decoration. Therefore, dingdongmao has heard people complain about the shape of Jianshui pottery more than once. Compared with purple sand and nixing pottery, it is ugly and strange in short.
Today, let’s not talk about the pot shape of Jianshui pottery. Let’s talk about the unique calligraphy and painting decoration of Jianshui pottery.
Calligraphy and painting are carved on pottery in Zisha and nixing pottery, but filling calligraphy and painting is the original creation of Jianshui pottery. Pottery is not like rice paper, can be directly painted after mounting. First, the pottery body is often curved surface, which is more difficult to create calligraphy and painting than flat paper; second, Jianshui pottery original creation of wet block filling and glaze free polishing, both of which have a greater impact on calligraphy and painting decoration.
The carving of Jianshui pottery must first be written in ink or color on the ceramic body, then engraved with a carving knife, and then filled with white clay or red, yellow, blue mud and other colors to dry, and then fired in the kiln, and then polished after leaving the kiln. If you want to decorate a piece of Jianshui pottery, you need to do the following at least:
One is that the thickness of the green body is moderate, and the green body is too thin, which is easy to pierce or deform;
Secondly, it is more difficult for calligraphers and painters to create on the curved surface;
The third is that the engraver carves along the handwriting of the calligraphy and painting, and can’t destroy the charm of the handwriting;
The fourth is to keep the charm of painting and calligraphy, and to convey the ideas that calligraphers and painters want to express;
The last process is also very important. It is said that many good works are well done in front of them, but unfortunately they are destroyed by the final polishing process. It is necessary to grind off the fire skin and present the calligraphy and painting completely, and ensure that they can not be damaged, especially the spout, handle and cover of the pot.
In this way, a Jianshui pottery work, such as calligraphy and painting, carving, firing and grinding, is good. The product is bright, elegant and beautiful. Famous calligraphers and paintings, carved by ceramic artists, present a natural and rustic charm of gold and stone, giving people unlimited artistic enjoyment, which is beyond the scope of other famous ceramics.
