CHEN Mingyuan 陈鸣远



Introduction

"人间珠玉安足取 ,岂如阳羡溪头一丸土。

君不见轮扁当年老斫轮,又不见梓庆削鐻如有神。

古来技巧能几人,陈生陈生今绝伦。"

----清康熙汪文柏

How many peerless treasures can you take earthly; yet they worth less than a pill of soil from a creek bank in Yangxian.

Don't you see old Lun Bian cut wood into wheel in those days; Ain't you see that Zi Qing's work was made in heaven.

Since ancient times, how many people can have such skills; Mingyuan Mingyuan no one come even close to you.

---- by WANG Wenbo of Kangxi reign of Qing dynasty. Translation by George Wang, Ph.D.

题泥壶饮普洱/天青泥偷西铁

Drink Puerh with Yixing Clay Teapot/TianQingNi steals a poem from XiTie


普洱杯杯问,减肥须几年。

忽悠银万两,上当恨无边。

青竹然然趣,紫壶个个仙。

心宽天地美,事少睡鼾眠。

Drinking Puerh a cup after another, how many years I need for weight loss?

Tons of money spent, hatred endless obtained.

Smiley, smiley at bamboo, saint, saint of clay teapot.

Sky the limit with an open mind, sound sleep when worry free.

Just confirmed this teapot has a great clay - It got refreshed completely after usage of just one day. Generally speaking, calligraphy is hard to imitate.

Comparison with the one from the book:

Similarity: shape and craftsmanship, clay, calligraphy

Difference: the one from the book has a more detailed handle, and a repaired knob.
