    清末民初 冰心道人款段泥東坡提梁壺

    「金壽」篆文方印
    「冰心道人」篆文方印
    「汲來江水烹新茗,買盡吳山作畫屏。利用刻」

    壺圓身,溜肩,短流,三叉式高提梁,壺蓋、壺流和提梁作像生樹幹,樹幹上雕出大小樹洞,自然生動。壺蓋內鈐「金壽」二字篆文方印,壺身一側刻山水茅舍,遠山近石,小巧湖水,禽鳥高飛,均刻畫詳細,刻工細緻,刀法嫻熟,壺身另一側以行書刻詩文「汲來江水烹新茗,買盡吳山作畫屏。」,落款「利用」。壺底臥足中心鈐「冰心道人」篆文方印。段泥作胎,泥質中可見細微清灰砂顆粒,整壺比例協調,胎體敦實,尚為茗壺佳品。

    程金壽,清末明初宜興紫砂藝人,生卒不詳,傳世品中曾見蓋鈐「金壽」,底鈐「冰心道人」印。冰心道人為清末民國初期宜興名工程壽珍(1865 - 1939)之號,又名壽貞。原為宜興和橋人,太平天國後移居蜀山,為咸豐、同治年間宜興藝人養子,但製壺技藝更勝一籌。其最擅長製「掇球壺」,並曾於1915年美國三藩市「太平洋萬國巴拿馬博覽會」及1917年「芝加哥國際賽會」獲獎。程壽珍中晚年製壺只作掇球、仿古及漢扁壺三式,所致掇球壺均豐潤渾樸,周正完美。
