"KOL" Rice Patten Plate
「KOL」米通碟


Simple at first glance, there is a twist to this seemingly traditional design when conventional Chinese prosperous symbols have been replaced by icons we often see on social media, such as likes and hashtags. For example, the dragon at the centre is taking a selfie with its mobile phone. As we spend more and more time on social media, many of us are posting simply for a satisfactory like or comment from our friends. All of us are literally living for ‘likes’. ;)

 

驟看古樸清新、細看驚喜別緻,原來青花米通瓷碟上常見的吉祥圖案換成了社交網絡裡的「心心」和「讚好」。加上發文時經常使用到的「#」,搭配復古金框;碟中央的龍更拿起了手機自拍,閃光滿滿,可見「呃 LIKE 度」十足!現代人經常投放大量時間於社交媒體,希望「被讚」,大家所追求的快樂非它莫屬!

3 Wishes Plates Boxset

HK$700.00Price

From the dawn of time, tradesmen decorated Chinese porcelain with symbolic and auspicious ideas. Bat (fu 蝠) is a symbol of good fortune while deer (lu 鹿) symbolises the ability to reap rewards (lu 祿). The decorative details on Chinese porcelain reflect the hopes and wishes of the ancient Chinese people. Each generation holds a different set of expectations, and younger Millennials are driven by differentdesires today. Therefore, our work tries to combine traditional Chinese porcelain with popular culture, aiming to bring traditional crafts and blessings into everyday life.
 

自古以來,匠人們把寓意吉祥的圖案裝飾到陶器上。正如蝙蝠,象徵「福」,鹿代表「祿」,反映古人對美好生活的嚮往。每一個世代的追求都有所不同。如今人們所追求的卻是更多不同的渴望和理想。為此,我們糅合了中國古代瓷器及當代流行文化,把民間工藝和祝福寓意再次結合,呈現於生活裡。
