YAN, the eaves, are the edges of the roof which overhang the face of a wall. - A great poet in Song Dynasty, Su Shi’s (Dung Po), once wrote a Ci (Poetry): “Suddenly, the rain stopped like thin threads landing on the eaves; then there came the snow pellets dancing on the roof tiles.” These two lines create the scenery which visualizes the rain streaming along the tiles to the edge, dropping like many strings of beads. The interactions between water and the eaves are beautiful, gentle and graceful even if you just imagine. From two lines to two sets of utensils: one shows the traces of water; the other displays the halt and motion of water for the moment, trying to put the imagination of a literary work into actual works of craft and design as a profound interpretation of the “YAN.” - PLATES－“Then there came the snow pellets dancing on the roof tiles.” The rain drops and splashes on the tiles then drips at the edge of the eaves, creating ripples like a string of rain’s memory. - 4 pieces as a set, the longest side of the entire set is about 360mm.
