Dian Cui Fang / Tea set design

Dian Cui Fang
Dian Cui Fang

I have replaced kingfisher feathers,and combined them with modern minimalist design.Instead of fragile jewelry.I have used beautiful feathers in tea set that can be used in daily life.Taking the form of a tea service,I have presented the power of all living things in a series of green leaves and blended it with literati tea culture.A wide range of bird feathers can perpetuate the spirit of kingfisher feather inlay.Through modern methods,I try to improve and perpetuate this lost traditional technique;I want to elevate and sublimate this tradition,using its strengths to preserve a visual and spiritual essence.
