Tasteless taste

Gideon: The most ordinary things in life, as small as bottles, cups, spoons, etc., have been mass-produced and become unimportant, and this tacit acceptance of banality is becoming part of human nature today.
Unfortunately, most people lack awareness and vigilance.
It is also strange to say that the Japanese ancient artifacts favored by the Chinese people at present are also an “anti-/ movement” of the Japanese tea saint Chirikyu, who is also well-known to us, from the pure worship of the Tang objects to the aesthetic of wabi-sabi and things.
The happy tea bowl made by ancient Korean artisans is a model of this kind. The Tenmu Tea bowl, which originated in the Song Dynasty and is still in Japan, is also a good example.
When we first looked at Tianmu, we always felt coarse, thick glaze, not only heavy in our hands, but also could not see clearly the color of the soup. So since the Song Dynasty, it gradually lost in China.
But it is from this Tianmu tea that Japan began to give birth to the self-confidence of “harmony aesthetics” from “Tang things are omnipotent”.
In modern Japan (random recommendation, phoenix brand Dianchun, learn tea knowledge please pay attention to: www.lhecha.CoM), Liu Zongyue of the folk arts also quite complained about thousands of Lixiu, for the time people praised him as “thousands of Lixiu”, extremely angry.
He believed that Qian Lixiu catered to the daimyo of the time, built gold teahouses, and respected the name of tea ware, which had departed from the “Tao”. Does that make us weird?
At the beginning of contact with Japanese tea ware, it is easy to be impressed by their ingenuity, and their utensils still have the charm of Tang and Song dynasties.
But it is easy to be clever by showing off skills. This is also something that those of us who like Japanese ancient artifacts cannot fail to check.
Japanese flower ceremony, tea ceremony, incense and so on, spread orderly, and full of vitality. Then, why did ancient China not form such a “Tao”?
Must not also, but do not also. Buddhism from the East of India is a good example. Assuming that there is no ancient Chinese understanding and reconstruction of the original Buddhism in India, we can imagine that Theravada Buddhism can only leave us more historical buildings like Angkor Wat.
Mahayana Buddhism has a vast number of works, tens of thousands of Buddhist doctrines, but also combined with the spirit of ancient Chinese literati, created a new “Buddhist path” : Zen.
Taoism is also a creative and imaginative work of ancient China.
The same is true of Kukama mountains in Japan. Ancient Chinese temples Jia LAN, rarely in the “small” inside efforts. When a good place is obtained, the buildings on it rarely need to be “twice” arranged.
Therefore, it seems that we have been a relatively spontaneous people since ancient times, disdaining small skills and preferring to study knowledge on the “Road of Neo-Confucianism”, so it is not surprising that we have not produced the “Tao” based on the foundation and artifacts of Japan.
The Qing Dynasty’s aesthetic from the top down is a destruction of the Tang spirit. Fortunately, the Japanese had already passed on their wandugoaesthetic.
Of course, it is a pity that young people in Japan today do not care much about the artifacts inherited by their families, which can certainly be regarded as good news for lovers of tea ceremonies and ancient artifacts in our country, but I am deeply worried that we are not ready to inherit them again.
The first, of course, is the dating of skills. I have come into contact with the works of some so-called masters, and most of them lack a little spirit.
It’s not about skill.
Second, it is aesthetic dating. Modern wars and cultural/Revolutionary wars have destroyed too many material relics. In addition to museums, it is difficult for us to come into contact with the elegance of ancient artifacts and ancient buildings in daily life.
Third, the collection of ancient artifacts, most of them still only stay in the stage of showering wealth, showering skills, and did not form a guide to the norms of daily life, so see Zhao Zhongxiang, He Shen (Wang Gang) home furnishings, the total feeling is completely wasting those valuable works of art.
Collecting like that, it’s no different than collecting precious metals.
I also do not think that Japan can have any development or breakthrough in tea utensils at present, this is not a criticism, but I think that Japanese tea utensils have reached the peak after Edo and Meiji era.
After the Meiji period, the abandonment of Confucianism and the destruction of Buddhism, under the guidance of Western American life, it is impossible to appear what cannot be developed, and it is good to make repairs.
On the other hand, I also think that the right time has not yet come, and even if such a time will not come, I think it is unknown.
After all, the age is too long, and our current state of life is still too hasty and uncertain, in this case, can have enough calm cognition of aesthetic is already extravagant.
