Different thinking qualitatively changes into different “Hold Water” (vessels of Oriental philosophy and harmony). To maintain a balanced ecology, sensibility and rationality are naturally integrated into the vessels, and the unique thinking of “round sky and square earth” forms Oriental philosophy. We take the upper and lower parts of the vessels as the connection point between heaven and earth to keep the stability of the senses. Because of this simple and original thinking, we choose rough clay as raw materials, through a series of traditional techniques: grouting, drying, blowing glaze, high temperature firing, so that the original thinking shape into an objective existence. The kiln burns at 1300 degrees, which changes the quality of the clay and radiates new vitality at the moment of opening the kiln. We hope to use the “Hold Water” to convey thinking, and feel the relaxed breath and mellow life state through every use.
Out of the dust and hidden in the dust. Shape yourself with your hands and blend your texture into this vessel, which can hold water, your senses and thoughts. The flame makes the earth metamorphose and rejuvenate. Feel the touch of burning under the pure black glaze texture. Fill a cup, slowly empty your mind and melt yourself.
