爱玉,就像爱本真的我 
By11111  他山之石 发表于 2009/1/10 11:46:00 

  我一直不明白为什么结婚的时候要送钻石。钻石的美总是显得那么咄咄逼人。如果用它来象征爱情,倒也不错,因为这锋锐的棱角在最初才最鲜艳最夺目,那种令人眼花缭乱的折射,让你再也分辨不开。拥有一只钻戒,就幸福得好像拥有整个世界。它很坚硬,而且最好不要与皮肤接触,沾了汗水会使它褪去光泽,更不要说沾上洗衣粉洗洁精什么的了。谁会把这么珍贵的东西放在这些液体里浸泡?它是受不得平庸的搓磨的。
  钻石经常让我想起轰轰烈烈的爱情,那些用昂贵的代价换回来的爱情。而婚姻不是这样的。一个女人如果怀着对钻石的期望走进婚姻,她一定会失望。
  我却更钟爱玉。
  玉光润、温和,没有棱角,它不会硌着我,用手抚摩,也是亲切的。而且带的日子久了,它好像一天天晶莹滑腻起来,于是我相信它是有灵气的。这好像两个人的相处,慢慢地熨贴,适应彼此的纹理,然后,浑然一体。
  然而,玉又比任何东西都更倔强。宁为玉碎,不为瓦全,碎了就碎了,再也没有办法拼合,这真正的伤心只有一次,再也无法妥协。所以,也不会因为它的温和就对它任意胡为,它的心同样会碎。我们还是会好好地把它放到一个安全的所在。
  我们雕琢着玉。以自己心目中期望的形象来塑造着它。如果玉是婚姻,那么我们就是玉匠。是沦落为千篇一律的挂件,还是绝世珍品,就全看你的了。可是有一点,玉可以被层层剥落,却不要寄望去扭曲它。即使你用全世界的火焰来灼烧也无济于事。这份倔强就好像是说,你爱我,就爱本真的我,不要让我学会迎合。
  我因此觉得玉更像是陪伴一生的爱人。
  婚姻里不会有夺目的光华,你不要希望它像金银珠宝一样熠熠生辉。即使有光泽,也是淡淡的,柔和的,像披着一层青色的霞光。是生活令它如此的低调,如此的久长。然后,温温润润地贴在胸口,让你偶尔忘记它的存在,可是当你低头,它一定会在。因为与你寸步不离,它感染上了你的气息,在一颦一笑中息息相关。
  如果你爱它,不要计较它从哪里来。只知道从现在开始,它只停在你怀里,如果不是遗失和打碎,今生都不会再离开你。
  也许我不够疯狂地爱你。因为长久倚在你的胸口,我已温润如玉。

中国与国外玉器文化特征及地位比较 
By11111  他山之石 发表于 2008/11/14 12:49:00 

前面我的几篇博文介绍了一些关于国外玉矿、国外玉雕工艺及玉器文化的相关资料。

今天我要推荐给大家的这篇文章出自北京大学公众考古与艺术中心,文章从采玉时间、玉质玉色、琢玉工具、碾琢技艺、玉器功能、玉器造型、玉器装饰图案等七个方面阐述了中国玉器与国外玉器文化的种种不同,很有意思。

New Zealand Carvings

The unique designs and forms of New Zealand jade.Pounamu has special significance for the Maori.

The Maori believe that Pounamu absorbs the 'mana' or spiritual power of its wearer. The Maori also believe that a piece of Pounamu will always yearn to return to its source in

the rivers and mountains of New Zealand.

New Zealand jade carving is unique in its designs and forms. We owe this to the Maori who have refined techniques of working with the stone over a long period of time. We can

trace their use of Pounamu back to the twelfth century. Because of its extreme hardness, Pounamu was used by the Maori for weapons and tools. It was also prized by the Maori for

ornaments - pendants and earrings.

Many of the designs you see today are contemporary interpretations of traditional designs, which have been carved for centuries such as the hei matua (fish hook), the tiki

(representing man) and the manaia (serpent form).

It can be said that all jade carving has an organic dimension. New Zealand carving is dynamic and diverse - a fact evidenced by the increasing numbers of new and talented

sculptors and carvers, each creating their own unique designs from their own particular sources of inspiration, whether that be Maori, Pacific, Asian or Celtic.

新西兰的玉石雕刻

新西兰玉雕有着独特的设计和表现形式。Pounamu(普纳姆)对于毛利人具有特殊的意义。

毛利人相信Pounamu可以带来力量和幸运。毛利人还认为一块Pounamu总可以把他们带回到新西兰的山山水水。

(译者备注:中国人把玉看作是天地精气的结晶,用作人神心灵沟通的中介物。新西兰人同样相信他们的“绿色石头”(Pounamu)能带来力量和幸运。Pounamu是被毛利人视为圣物的材料,许多人形像,小配件,武器等都用这种玉石制成的。)
  
新西兰的玉雕的特别之处在于它的设计和形式。这要归功于毛利人花了很长时间用以完善琢磨石头的技术。他们开始使用Pounamu的历史,我们可以追溯到十二世纪前。因为它极高的硬度、Pounamu曾被毛利人做为武器和工具。它也被毛利人制成饰品-吊坠、耳环。

一个美国玉雕工作室的作品欣赏 
By11111  他山之石 发表于 2008/10/31 11:50:00 

Peter Shilling is a brilliant jade carver, as well as the curator of the Harvard Museum Jade Collection.
His studio is called Taking Form Jade Studio.


Peter Shilling 是一个出色的的玉石雕刻者,同时也是哈佛大学博物馆玉器收藏馆馆长。
他的工作室叫做 Taking Form Jade Studio(译:以形玉雕工作室)

Design inspiration and process  设计灵感和进展

The name “Taking Form Jade Studio” comes from my commitment to the rich possibilities of the language of three-dimensional form and from the process of discovery and development inherent in the active pursuit of artistic excellence.

Jade is the sculptor’s gemstone, and the material itself is an inspiration. I think of my pendants as small scale wearable sculptures to be experienced directly and intimately, bringing art and life together on a daily basis.

The inspiration for the forms I carve comes from a wide range of sources which can be divided into the two categories of culture and nature. A familiarity with the cultural productions of the history of art informs my work. We humans have been making art objects since the Stone Age and the richness and beauty of that legacy is at once inspiring and intimidating. Nonetheless I believe artists must be aware of what others have done, seek to understand it, internalize it, and then create their own personal and distinctive body of work. We are all magpies. The beauty of the forms of natural objects is an inspiration to me. A painter may gaze at a cloud-swept sky and find inspiration but I often look down and pick up shells, seed pods, nuts, and leaves. I find the three-dimensional spirals of shells especially fascinating and absorbing. Objects such as shells, seed pods, and nuts have resonating relationships of interior and exterior, decay and growth, emptiness and fullness, and of impermanence and permanence. On a practical level, they also provide good opportunities to make hollowed sculptural pendants which exploit the translucency and toughness of jade.

The process of developing a glimmer of inspiration into a fully resolved design for a jade carving can be quite immediate or can stretch over a period of years. Multiple drawings and models in wax, wood, or clay are usually involved. Like many artists, I work in series, exploring certain ideas repeatedly, developing a vocabulary of forms, pushing, pulling, and combining them in various ways. The first attempt is rarely the best and dogged determination to refine and perfect a design usually works in the end.

Without being worked, jade cannot be shaped into a vessel; without being educated, people cannot be shaped into virtuous citizens.
