Peace & Harmony – Bamboo Collection is inspired by Free and Easy Wandering, a story written by the great Chinese philosopher, Zhuang-zi. Designer, Li Jie-wen’s is able to accomplish her ultimate goal of transferring Zhuang-zi’s fabled problem free life on to and within this unique piece of porcelain.
The porcelain pieces are streamlined in styling and sophisticated in color, creating an endless illusion for viewers.
The embellished green bamboo leaves allows viewers to fall into the imagination of a free and unfettered life.
Another collection, Lotus Harmony, features leaves in jade green color diffusing the most natural beauty in mother nature.
