A clean-lined interpretation of an ancient form, this tapered basin was hand-carved by artisans in China's Shandong province. Though it looks like a meticulous painting, the mesmerizing pattern of the puddingstone is actually inherent to the stone, a conglomerate material quarried in the Liaoning region of China and prized by scholars for its exceptional patterning. Puddingstone was the preferred material for traditional calligraphy tables, not only for its appearance but also for the density of the surface it offers for painting. Intriguing and beautiful, this basin has fantastic texture and calls to be touched.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
