When you walk into qingshuihe County Honghe Town Gaomaoquan kiln village he Chunmei’s main room, you will be a group of multificacy, colorful, bright and eye-catching face art, cloth art, paper-cut products attracted…He Chunmei, female, was born on April 18, 1980 at home in Gaomao Quanyao. When she was three years old, her parents divorced due to disharmony in personality, and she has been living with her father and grandmother.She has been influenced by her grandmother’s crafty mind and hands, and she can cut and knead skillfully. She has practiced clay sculpture, dough sculpture, paper cutting and cloth art. She is also one of the few folk artists in the surrounding area…He Chunmei grandma named Li Qiaolan (her family is chengguan Town black Leng Liang village people), in the past people’s commune in that kind of social environment is ten miles eight village famous able man, from childhood by her grandmother he E woman (her family Chengguan Town walk horse yan people).At that time, the He family was a wealthy family. They raised mules and horses, employed long and temporary laborers, and trained their children to read and write.In this family environment, grandma learned the skills of puerrans giving birth to children and delivering babies during the period of undeveloped countryside, as well as the art of kneading faces ku Lue, kneading clay figures, cutting Windows and sewing cloth art. Naturally, it played a role in the saying “born in the door, you will rise to three points” and she could be counted as a folk artist.The family handicraft has been passed down for three generations, from his great grandmother and grandmother to He Chunmei herself.He chunmei still vaguely remembers: when she was a child, after her parents divorced, she and her grandmother stayed together all the time, inseparable.Sometimes in the middle of the night wrapped into small feet of grandma riding on the donkey led by the people to go, or a child he Chunmei knew grandma was invited to give birth to the maternal go.During the day, when grandma went out on a fine day, Mei followed her.Wherever they went, she could hear people’s regret for her parents’ divorce, especially the women comrades who were more sympathetic to her. They gave Xiaochunmei preferential food and allowed her to open a small kitchen, and their language shared their feelings for her.In the young heart planted a lack of maternal love bitter fruit.Just sensible of the time, her grandmother to words emotive, touching, often go out for the village outside the maternity delivery, then a birth owner will send three feet of red cloth to grandma as a fee, grandma with these red cloth to still small spring mei do a red clothes.Grandma for the maternal delivery of a set of skills, the people’s commune times above also for grandma distributed a set of delivery equipment and disinfectant, spring mei remember grandma in her old age gave this equipment to the sister-in-law spring mei’s third grandmother.Every time the villagers of Zhou Village celebrate their children’s birthdays and round the lue, Grandma will be invited to lead Spring Mei to “ku Lue” their faces. The Twelve Lunar New Year animals, nine pomegranates and one Buddha hand etc. At this time the host will always give Little Spring Mei one more little man or fish to her to eat.Every slack season, her grandmother often designs his own paper-cuts with novel patterns, and cuts the paper-cuts of various patterns carefully and carefully with paper-cuts. The application is stuck on the window when the paper is changed for the New Year.Sometimes, when the neighbors saw the beautiful paper-cuts cut by grandma, they would ask for some and give Chunmei’s family some rice noodles or snacks as a reward.Often think of grandma was invited to go home for the elderly sewing shroud, cloth tiger, cloth doll, cloth emperor pillow……Grandma is clever and skillful, all the things she saw in her eyes can be sewed or pinched by hand to make vivid works.Her grandmother’s operation of these skills was vividly remembered in her mind.Grandma Chun Mei asked chun Mei to be very strict, and began to teach her to knead dough figurines. Because of the shortage of white flour at that time, she would go out and take out red clay and water and let her knead animals such as the Chinese Zodiac. Sometimes, in order to knead a tail or an ear, she would teach her many times by hand until she learned to knead them.In the time of paper cutting, from the beginning of the scissors posture to the cutting of each process, from where to where to cut, are taught her step by step.As time went by, after grandma’s careful training, their own hard study, repeated operation, she finally can stand on her own feet and take the initiative to provide the villagers with quality services of face art, paper cutting and cloth art.The word spread around, and when it came to the clever he Chunmei, everyone knew her.Deeply admired and admired by the villagers.It has been more than 12 years since He Chunmei’s grandmother passed away, and she still treasures the big red bowl of instant noodles that her grandmother gave her before she passed away.I can see how much He chunmei misses her grandmother.She is a crafty person and has a special mind to remember. In order to extend the art handed down by grandma to a deeper level, she has been exploring and learning from ordinary popular facial art to more refined facial art. Last November,I went to Liu Lili Noodle Art Museum in LAN Town, LAN County, Shanxi Province, which has a history of noodle art for 1370 years, for a one-month study of traditional noodle art, and mastered the design, steps and formula of colorful noodle sculpture finishing, focusing on funeral offerings:Longfeng, peacock, fruit, flower basket, pigs, sheep on the surface of plane art production technology, to make the surface art art the intangible cultural heritage projects in our county, continue to carry forward the broad and profound, shanxi luliang region LAN county face art in-depth and careful study, repeatedly ponders over, has its own plane art work process more fine, image, vivid.Fans who have seen her work all nod and praise her for her generosity.The end of the New Year is approaching, while she is preparing the goods for the New Year, she is still preoccupied with deep drilling and fine research, such as: surface art works in the process of finishing, the use of the formula and so on.As young chun-mei he determined to use his life to qingshuihe art, clay sculpture, paper cutting, cloth art and art into a higher grade, make art, paper cutting, cloth art the intangible cultural heritage projects in qingshuihe earth begins to take root, sprout, blossom and bear fruit, like a bright pearl shining in the…
