Its clean shape pays tribute to the well-known eponymous Asian vase, but its graphic content is quite another story...
Once separated, the subtle dishware container, made up of plates and salad bowls, immerse the guests in a familiar mythology.
The story of this new Faux-Semblant in the silhouette of a Qing vase is inspired by a famous Chinese quote from the lastof the Four Extraordinary Books of China, The Dream in the Red Pavilion.
.This classic of 18th century Chinese literatureexplores the sentimental meanderings of two characters in a historical, political and poetic context of a rare intensity.In one passage, a man reveals his feelings to his loved one in a passionate declaration: 弱水三千,只取一瓢 «In theocean of possibilities, you are the only one who exists for me.»
This exclusive and eternal love inspires Rachel Convers,who imagines faces revealing themselves as the water flows by, gentle female figures of possible loves.
Dotted withlilies and irises, they skim the opaline surface of the river in their graceful, melancholy wanderings. From the artist’s point of view, Qing River is an ode to the one who has been held back.
The fineness of the assembly gives the vase perfect stability and makes it suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.
The table service invites a contemporary setting to set the scene for the arrival at the table.
