Name & Concept of Artwork 作品名稱與設計理念
Concept of artwork 設計理念:
The earth is the best gift of the universe. Our ancestors observed the change of the sun and shadows and worked out the solar terms with wisdom and poetry. Could we also experience the internalized realization brought by this order of the four seasons? Winter cloud, spring rain, summer heat and autumn chill. Try to combine these solar terms with tea wares to make the scenery on the tea table, connecting it with the vista outside the window.
表現節氣的創作茶具組共四套，分別為春分、立夏、秋分、小雪，含茶壺、茶盤、茶海茶杯與茶寵，以不同顏色之瓷土和陶土絞胎，手拉坏成型。壺鈕為節氣代表小物，以銅管撐高，於壺蓋上形成有趣的影子，象徵古人用來觀測日影的工具。讓節氣茶器合為一體，成為日常的一種新的生活風格。 There are four sets of creative tea sets expressing solar terms, namely vernal equinox, early summer, autumnal equinox, and light snow. They contain teapots, tea trays, tea sea cups and tea pets. They are made of different colors of porcelain clay and clay, which are twisted and formed by hand. The pot knob is a small object representing solar terms. It is supported by a copper tube to form an interesting shadow on the pot lid, which symbolizes the tool used by ancients to observe the shadow of the sun. Let solar term tea utensils be integrated into a new daily life style.
