荷花與蓮花雖有相似之處, 科屬有別, 無論蓮荷, 瑩白嫩粉淺紫, 水生植物花朵的婀娜比陸叢錦簇還勝幾分. 或許是心頭設計師作祟, 我更欣賞蓮藕蓮子蓮蓬可食可藥可用, 而田田蓮葉, 意像寧靜悠然神秘, 是我靈魂深處那位姆指精靈永憩之所.
The set of three Lotus trays makes a serene landscape on any horizontal surfaces:
To give your stationery and paper clips a stylish home.
To create personal rituals like a 'me time' tea ceremony(Please note that these trays are NOT for direct use with food. To position them as mini chargers/coasters with a food safe container or present wrapped chocolates in them like a candy dish as shown in my photo is okay.)
或品茗間的詩句. 但, 別直接由銅器取用食物.
To pamper oneself or your guest with aromatic amenities. I do not recommend using these trays for candles/votives/tea lights due to the pronounced vein texture although the small tray fits a standard votive and the large tray, a standard pillar candle.
To start gardening indoors and indulge in your daily bouquet of potpourri.
小株薄荷, ㄧ碟桂皮八角, 幾顆熱帶艷果, 自成創意室內花園.
此闕江城子後段有些許惘然: 忽聞江上弄哀箏, 若含情, 遣誰聽? 煙斂雲收, 依約是湘靈, 欲待曲終尋問取, 人不見, 數峰青.
我父親最終娶了另外ㄧ位陳小姐, 與荷芳的初戀或許是夏日蓮花池畔的邂逅? 我們總是取笑'請歐風', 卻從來沒試著瞭解爸爸的情懷… 而父親逝世不知不覺已ㄧ年, 我則永遠失落知道答案的機會.
The set includes 3 trays(small, medium, large)packaged in natural shoji paper tied with a twine(as shown in the first photo), and a signed COA double functioning as gift card. The face paper on the shoji wrap bears two seals: double koi in plum for good fortune and my Chinese emblem in spruce for 'from my heart to your home'.
A while ago, I stumbled upon a reflective line when reading Before I Go to Sleep by SJ. Watson - "How quickly I would be forgotten, were I to die." Perhaps this is the exact motivation behind my constant urge to create and to design so many years from now when I am no longer around in this world I love, my dears, you can still meet me by the lotus pond :)
