Footnotes

  • For an almost identical teapot in the K.S. Lo collection, see The Stonewares of Yixing from the Ming Period to the Present Day, Hong Kong, 1986, p.32, pl.7, where the author points out that Yixing stoneware with reticulated decoration began from the Qing dynasty but is rarely used due to the requirement of high skilled techniques.

    清中期 紫泥鏤花玲瓏竹壺

    壺成竹束形,八竹節團在一起,每竹節處再鏤雕竹枝紋,大中見小,這種鏤雕竹枝紋也運用到蓋上。鈕、把及流均以竹節為飾,整件作品貫穿著竹子這題材,發揮得淋漓盡致。

    另一件羅桂祥先生的藏品,玲瓏八竹壺,在形製及工藝上皆十分相近,參見《宜興陶藝》,頁101,圖版41及K.S.LO,The Stonewares of Yixing from the Ming Period to the Present Day, Hong Kong, 1986, p.32, pl.7.

    紫砂玲瓏,亦稱「玲瓏眼」或「鏤花」,其意是將花紋鏤通或鏤成兩面通透之漏空紋飾,清代開始使用此技法但運用較少。
