Footnotes

  • Wang Yinchun (1897-1977) is a native of Shangyuan village, Yixing. He started working as an apprentice at twelve years old under the supervision of Jin Ahshou. He was known particularly for his speed and accuracy in making Yixing teapots which are usually square, hexagonal, octagonal, barved and floral-lobed shapes. In 1935, he started reproducing Yixing teapots made by the old masters. It is this later period which affected his style and thence influenced his later masterpieces.

    王寅春款紫泥鋪砂水仙花菱壺

    「寅春」
    「庚戌秌日,時大彬製」

    壺呈花菱形,扁圓身,花口,圈足,花菱形短彎流,單耳柄。壺身由六片花菱組成,猶如水仙花瓣,花葉中間又飾凸起筋紋,雅緻惟妙, 壺蓋、壺鈕搭配壺身亦作花菱形,蓋內鈐「寅春」篆書印,壺底陰刻「庚戌秌日,時大彬製」楷書款。整壺造型優美,自然得體。紫紅色泥質中作鋪砂工藝,呈現梨皮之效果,為近代紫砂仿古精器。

    王寅春(1897 – 1977年),宜興川埠鄉上袁村人,12歲從師宜興紫砂名工金阿壽學藝,其製壺技藝嫻熟精煉,以快速、高質著稱。王氏技藝全面,無論四方、六方、八方、海棠、梅花及菊花等皆精通。民國二十四年(1935年),王尹春於上海仿製古代紫砂製品,期間對歷史名匠佳作有過細緻研究,並對他以後創作帶來裨益。民國二十六年(1937年)中日戰爭爆發後,以返鄉自產自銷紫砂為生。王氏曾設計製作過很多紫砂器新造型,作品多次參加國內外展覽。

    此壺造型古樸,紫泥拼沙,沙顆粒摻燒均勻,紫泥中隱約呈現金黃色斑點,手撫則似有梨皮質感,可見為製壺者深知明代以來各製壺大家之時代特徵而特意模仿所作。
