Tea drinking has been an integral part of Chinese culture for centuries, resulting in a wide range of social customs and material traditions. In addition to tea leaves, water, and heat, the art of drinking tea (chayi) calls for a variety of teaware and utensils - both practical and decorative.

This sculptural teapot dates to the late Qing dynasty and was hand-carved from bamboo to appear as though parceled by a cloth strung with tassels. A tall, arched handle surmounts the teapot, shaped from a thin bamboo branch. Appealing to the popular appreciation for organic forms, the base of the teapot was minimally worked, preserving the natural patterning of the wood grain.

“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.”
