bamboo / Tea set


Bamboo, honored as one of three durable plants of winter and four gentlemen of flowers, has a special status in Chinese traditional culture and it has been endowed with numerous morals. It is a spiritual symbol of elegant and noble poetic imagery which had been pursued by ancient literati and eminent scholars of various dynasties. With succinct-modeled porcelain’s contrast and combination with rubber, Bamboo leaves an impression of fashion and innovation. Bamboo is also integrated with bamboo’s shape and comprehensive effects. This exquisite and elaborate model shows the assimilation of realistic and freehand style.
