YiXing's King of Mei Hua 梅花 "Plum Blossoms" Engraving: ZHU BING HAO Artistic byname: SHI TAO 宜兴 梅王 朱炳浩 艺名:石陶:紫砂七老任淦庭的徒弟 双国大师鲍志强的师弟

石陶的墨梅是他的代表作 也是他被誉为宜兴梅王的原因。

Shi Tao's "Inked Plum Blossom effect" is his zenith representative creation and work. It is the prime reason for his status and fame as YiXing's "King of Plum Blossoms".

Below are the previous, precious two Works arranged here in the past year (January and May 2022) and collected by two of our international Collectors, his Engraving done on a Mei Hua Zhou Pan 梅花周盘, and a Zi Ye Shi Piao 子冶石瓢 (You can search using the Keywords : "Zhu Bing Hao" to find these two Works here on our site.)  Thank you to the two Collectors:
墨 in Chinese, means, Ink.

There is the Chinese phrase and depiction of a solid filling up of calligraphy words: "浓墨重笔" literally translated as "Dense Ink, Heavy Handed".

Here, thus, 墨梅 (crudely translated as "Inked Plum Blossoms") defers to effect of:  Plum Blossoms being engraved such that they appear Solid with substance, filled up and Vivid in Whole.

First, we have to understand that, the method of engraving Plum Blossoms on ZiSha pots, usually entails only carving out the SILHOUETTE, the rim and outer edge of the Plum Blossoms.

However, Zhu Bing Hao pioneered and made it his own specialty in YiXing ZiSha's hallowed halls of fame, for mastering and depicting engraved Plum Blossoms in a SOLID-AND-VIVIDLY-IN-WHOLE-effect. There is the engraving and crafting the inner fills within the silhouette, the texture. There is also the amazing effect of layering: some Plum Blossoms (usually the lower ones) appearing 3-dimensionally closer to you (than the upper ones).

This method of Engraving Plum Blossoms, is not replicated by any other Artists in YiXing.

Here you get to own one. Prices appreciating significantly.🎋🎋🎋

He is 78 years of age now and going into retirement very, very soon.
