  • 六朝玉雕綜論


    六朝或謂魏晉南北朝,即北朝六朝:魏、晉、後魏、北齊、北周、隋,及南朝六朝:東吳、東晉、宋、齊、梁、陳。從公元二二零年至公元五八八年,共約三百六十八年。在這期間各方英雄豪傑,紛紛爭霸,逐鹿中原。群雄對峙、分裂、戰火紛飛。國祚有的都非常短暫。例如,北周只有短短二十四年。整個六朝時期,社會動盪頻繁。烽煙四起。所以一般都認為六朝玉雕應是鳳毛麟角,很是稀少。偶爾有機緣收入一件,真是欣喜若狂。文物出版品中的古玉部分,六朝古玉尚付闕如。即使有機會面對六朝古玉時,也會有難以確認之感。畢竟缺乏比較及對照組。在收集過程中,主要的參考書籍為《中華文明傳真.魏晉南北朝》(劉煒主編,羅宗真著,商務印書館(香港)出版)。及《中華圖案五千年第五輯.魏晉南北朝》(美工科技公司出版)。以既有確定之出土文物的資料,來作為判斷所接觸之古玉是否為六朝古玉。自己摸索前進,而非倚靠博物館或其他典藏機構,因為這些地方 ...

  • 瓷器故鄉:瓷器文化與藝術特色

    從中國陶瓷發展史來看,一般把「陶瓷」這個名詞一分為二,為陶和瓷兩大類。經過高溫燒成、胎體燒結程度較為緻密、釉色品質優良的黏土或瓷石製品才被稱為「瓷器」。早在商代,中國就出現了原始青瓷,隨著時代演進,對原料的選擇、坯泥的淘洗、器物的成型、施釉直至燒窯等技術,都逐漸提高,並漸漸形成完整的工藝體系。到東漢晚期,終於燒製出成熟的青瓷。魏晉南北朝是各民族融合的時期,從北齊一些器物的特殊造型和圖案上都可以找到中西文化交流的痕跡。中國白釉瓷萌芽於南北朝,發展於隋朝。到了唐代早期,青、白瓷器物的特色為腹部豐滿,平底無釉;中、晚期則出現少量圈足器及滿釉器物。五代十國的瓷器造型多沿襲晚唐風格,但製作較前精巧,品種也更豐富多彩。陶瓷業至宋代得到了蓬勃發展,並開始對歐洲及南洋諸國大量輸出。以鈞、汝、官、哥、定為代表的名窯在各地興起。元朝時樞府窯出現,景德鎮開始成為中國陶瓷產業中心,其名聲遠揚於世界各地。明朝時 ...
