Stone Monkey Sees Sea / Product design/Tableware

Stone Monkey Sees Sea
Stone Monkey Sees Sea

Design specification: This is a design about incense table and the inspiration of design comes from one of the wonders in Huang Mountain, China( Stone Monkey gazing over the sea of clouds). I use the design method which to see the big things through the small things. Using the stone instead of the mountain and comparing smog to cloud. The special scene of nature is concentrated in the work. I adopt the principle of negative pressure to make the smog change the direction and drop down. Actually the life is the same. You can see further if you stand higher.And then you won’t lose the direction in the sea of realizing the dream.
