Oriental embroidery pattern meets elegant western lace. These objects of intense tactility and visual softness express the traditional wedding blessings that Chinese mothers give to their daughters. The translucency of the eggshellthin porcelain plays with light, almost penetrating the surface.

Developed during the Chinese Song Dynasty, eggshell porcelain or bodiless chinaware is a unique technique that allows pattern to be seen through the remarkably thin porcelain body under light.

Utilizing the ancient and rarely practiced skill “Anhua” engraving, a watermark effect is created on the porcelain. Tradition is revived to produce these refined and emotionally poetic objects
