黄政道(中国台湾)
黄政道,出生于台湾,是国际知名的壶艺家。他旅游过三十个国家以上,并且曾经在英国、中国、法国、波兰、捷克、爱沙尼亚、韩国、立陶宛、挪威、美国和新西兰的许多大学、艺术中心和市政府担任客座艺术家。他的作品也被许多国内外的博物馆收藏,比如加拿大的「加得尼尔陶瓷博物馆」,美国的「波姆那陶瓷博物馆」,意大利的「法恩札陶瓷博物馆」,中国的「无锡博物馆」和「镇江博物馆」,波兰的「布拉什瓦给特陶瓷博物馆」,爱沙尼亚的「塔林应用艺术博物馆」和英国的「诺丁汉城堡博物馆」等等。
下列是黄政道作壶生涯的三点感受:
1、壶非一相。
2、饮茶,不仅仅是一种生活方式,更是一种生活艺术化的信仰。
3、制壶,失意时,以儒学持之;得意时,以佛心处之;无得无失,以道家守之。

Hwang Jeng-daw (Taiwan, China)
Hwang Jeng-daw, born in Taiwan, is an internationally acclaimed teapot-maker. He has traveled to more than 30 countries, and has been guest artist at various universities, art centers and city governments in many countries such as United Kingdom, China, France, Poland, Czech, Estonia, Korea, Lithuania, Norway, the United States, and New Zealand. His works are also widely collected by many museums worldwide, such as “the George R. Gardiner Museum of Ceramic Art” in Canada, “American Museum of Ceramic Art” in USA, “Faenza International Ceramics Museum” in Italy, “Zhenjiang Museum” and “Wuxi Museum” in China, “Boleslawiec Ceramics Museum” in Poland, “Tallinn Applied Art Museum” in Estonia, and “Nottingham Castle Museum” in England.
The followings are some of Hwang Jeng-daw’s feelings collected throughout his teapot-making career.
1. Teapots show us different ways and we also give teapots different appearances.
2. Drinking tea is not only a way of life, but also a belief in the life of art.
3. If you cannot make a good teapot, reflect upon the Confucian teachings. If you make a great teapot, reflect upon the Buddhist teachings. If this doesn’t work, reflect upon the Taoist teachings.
