Tea set

INSPIRATION:
The tea set is inspired by the classic Chinese garden with harmonious combination of elements such as moon gate, Taihu stone, various carved windows, lake ripples and many other elements. Bring the taste of classic Chinese garden's aesthetic and exquisite craftsmanship together into the pot and cups, which also give the sense of quiet oriental aesthetic while enjoying tea.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The loop handle was inspired by the image of moon gate in classic Chinese gardens, in the shape of bridge connected with teapot. The teapot covered with classic elements commonly used in classic Chinese gardens-Taihu stone as knob, ripple layers as shape of lid. The interlayer of the silver cup can keep the cup from too hot to hold, the outer layer hollows all kinds of carved windows, what a delight! The artwork perfectly demonstrates the crossover of oriental garden architecture and tea sets.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
With the main function of a tea set, but unlike the others, Exquisite Moon Dreamer allows you to distinguish which cup you just used by the different hollows on the cup. The double layer design can keep the cup from too hot to hold. It is also a reborn of the intangible cultural heritage in daily life.
