紫砂茶壺的工藝美術 – 貼花
宜興紫砂土質幼細,可塑性高,致使紫砂茶壺造型千變萬化。
用於坯體相同的泥料,透過手捏堆塑或壓印紋飾,貼附生坯上,然後直接入窰燒製。紫砂器貼花茶具多見於17世紀下半茶。

The Art of Purple Clay Teapot – Applique decoration

This is the embellishment of the vessel with sculpted, kneaded or press-moulded clay decorations in relief before the ware is directly fired. This decoration method came into fashion during the second half of the 17th century.

茶文化在中國源遠流長,茶人云「水為茶之母,壺是茶之父」,是強調水質和茶器對於茶韻的重要性,二者缺一不可,而當中的壼所代表的正是紫砂茶壺。紫砂茶壺一直是泡茶最理想的工具,其獨特性主宰了茶湯的香氣和韻味,可見紫砂茶壼對茶之重要性。

There's a saying in China that "water is the mother of tea, and the teapot is the father". It means that the Purple Clay teapot is just as important in making and serving tea as tea leaves and water. Purple Clay teapot is China's gold standard when it comes to brewing equipment because of its porous nature and its rich mineral content. Tea brewed in a Purple Clay teapot develops a richer flavor and taste.
