From TTNews Reporter Gang-wu Fan
Noutou County—

Rising slowly, the white steam just like a curve goes with the shape of pot perfectly. It is like a unique picture. This icy smoke pot of Mu Tao Kiln really impressed me.

The icy smoke pot is made by Wun-si Chen who has had the reputation in the pottery circle. Mr. Chen left hometown and worked hard in the early years. Afterwards, back to Shueili where is famous for its history of pottery, he chose to live in obscurity leisurely in the mountain area. He has endeavored to make a variety of delicate ceramics more than ten years and held lots of exhibitions.

An icy smoke pot means literally that a pot raises the smoke. Your feeling will be delighted when you drink a cup of tea and appreciate that smoke curls upwards. After the hot water showers the surface of pot, the water adheres to the surface which has numerous needle holes. This condition produces the steam (icy smoke). It is quite complicated to make an icy smoke pot. You need to have good craftsmanship and good control of strength to make the needle holes spread equally on the surface of the pot. It could be the top-grade pottery.

Besides, you need to spend two days to finish an icy smoke pot. Because it is harmful to the eyesight, an output of icy smoke pot is less than before. The products of Mu Tao Kiln were tea pots in the past. Now, Mu Tao Kiln also produce the ceramics for admire and use.

Mr. Chen has taken out a patent on his design— icy smoke pots. Each pot which has different name, shape, and content is worth collecting. You can buy an icy smoke pot only at Mu Tao Kiln or the department store.


冰煙壺 壺生煙 輕煙繚繞 茶香飄

白色的蒸汽緩緩上升,形成一道很自然的弧線,與壺本身優美的線條構成一幅獨特的畫面,這就是冰煙壺,來到位於水里的沐陶窯,這冰煙壺令人印象深刻。

  冰煙壺是在陶藝界頗負盛名的陶藝家陳文祺所創作,陳文期早期曾經離鄉打拼,但終究還是回到極具陶藝工藝史的水里,選擇隱居山上悠閒的生活,專注於陶藝世界十多年,手工細膩,熟捻各式陶土,在各地辦了許多項的陶藝展。

  冰煙壺顧名思義就是茶壺生煙,在品茗之餘還能欣賞茶煙煙霧繚繞的情境,讓心境如同裊裊白煙一般柔順、輕快;冰煙壺的原理在於當熱水淋壺身時,因水分停留附著於密密麻麻、滿佈毛細針孔的壺上,就會產生冰煙水氣的縹緲現象,這種壺製作過程相當繁複,需掌握相當的技巧與力道才能讓壺面的氣孔分佈平均,可說是陶藝的精工之作。

 此外,一把冰煙壺需要兩天工作時間,很傷眼力,所以就愈做愈少。過去都以茶壺為主,現在除了茶壺,沐陶窯還有製造生活陶。

 冰煙壺已獲得內政部的專利申請通過,每一款壺只有一個,名稱形狀大小都不同,極具收藏價值,目前除了在陳文期沐陶窯之外,只有在百貨公司買的到這樣的精品壺具。﹝圖‧文\范綱武﹞
