The purple sand pot has been inherited for hundreds of years, often praised for its simplicity and elegance, and with a literati style. This literati style not only appears on the pot body with painting and engraving, but is also hidden in the bottom script.

Since the ancient times, Di Bian has used bamboo knife to carve his name on the pot. Since then, purple sand has had its own unique style of seal like calligraphy and painting. Nowadays, in addition to certain pottery production, there are many more seals with a strong literati flavor.

Yuzhen Pavilion and Amantha Chamber

Manchu teapots are familiar to everyone. The bottom inscription of this kind of pot is mostly “Peng Nian”, and the bottom inscriptions are mostly Yuxian Palace, Aman Temple, and Sanglianli Hall.

The Yuxian Pavilion, named for the Man Sheng Room, comes from the poem “Planting Yuxian”. Chen Hongshou self-titled “Shu Xuan Tu” poem note: “From the Sea Chang Uncle Studio transplanted small courtyard, suddenly a flower, due to Qian Gao and Mianzhang made a picture and tied with poetry.” The tree here is the White Elm Tree.

Planting elm pavilion, these four words give a sense of transcendence and refine elegance.

The Amanto Room, first seen in the term “Mantuolo”, originated from Chen Mansheng’s poem ” After Cheng Liuyao’s Wen Ti Nushi Xu Lan Yun Shi Cao, Further Looking for a Chapter, Re-making Long Song In Appreciation” in which the line “Mantuolo Hua Shi Bu De” is included.

Chen Mansheng and his guests often served Buddhism, and Chen Mansheng was also given the character “Mans”, “Amita” which originated from Sanskrit, meaning “the place where the gods gather”. This style also indicates that this is a place for the master and his entourage to gather.

At the Mulberry Link Pavilion, one day Chen Mansheng found a pair of mulberry trees on the west side of the hall. Everyone thought it was a great sign, so they built a pavilion for it and called it “Mulberry Link Pavilion”. They painted a picture of the host and guest of Mulberry Link Pavilion with their friends.

From the phrase “In heaven, be a pair of mandarin ducks; On earth, be two branches of one tree”, one can see the literary style.

The tea is fragrant and warm.

The fragrant, warm tea is the trademark of the master potter Shengxi. The Yixing Yumen reservoir has a phrase: “The Emperor orders the main Sushen, and with Shengxi’s achievement”. It was named after this meaning and devoted to the art of pottery, and skillfully carved.

The teapot made by the potter has many small holes at the bottom, which gives off a fragrant aroma of brewed tea and creates a leisurely scholarly atmosphere. This pattern is similar to Mr. Gu Jingzhou’s ability to appreciate tea with different perspectives.

The Immortal of Wuling.

The Wuling Elegant, a type of seal used by Mr. Gu Jingzhou in Shanghai after imitating the ancient style, is meticulous and exquisite, with rigorous and elegant workmanship.

People in Wuling are taken from the people of Peach Blossom Source recorded in the book, this design reveals their inner grace and elegance, and their pursuit of a beautiful style of delicate beauty.

In addition, there are the custom prints that were mentioned before, such as Xingyouhengtang, Shide Tang, Tanranzhai, Qingdetang, etc. Although they are mostly named after the master’s hall and studio, they still show elegance.

Go with constancy.

The moral of the story is to be constant in one’s dealings.

The World Temple is an ancient Chinese architectural complex located in Zhangjiakou, Hebei Province. It was built during the Northern Qi Dynasty (550-577) and is one of the most important temple complexes in north China. The complex consists of five main halls, each dedicated to a different deity, and ten subsidiary buildings. The main hall enshrines the Chinese god of war Wudi, and all other gods worshipped by local people are also worshiped here. It is said that the temple possesses great religious power. In addition to its spiritual significance, the World Temple also serves as a cultural relic for future generations to study and appreciate.

In order to pass on virtues through generations, expect that each generation will be virtuous.

Clear and serene studio.

Pursue a life of contented simplicity and elegant purity.

Qingde Hall
