Shen Garden Planter
What is life--what is beauty!--without a few rough edges? I was reminded of this devastating truth on a winter visit to Shen Garden, an 800-year-old property in Shaoxing. There, a famous Song Dynasty poet, Lu You, composed his most famous work, a poem of devastation and heartbreak on a public wall in the garden after a melancholy, accidental encounter with his first wife.
The story stayed with me, and it lives on in our Shen Garden Planter, where we embrace beautiful planters--with a difference in texture and finish around the rims. There, shiny glazes give way to bubbles, spots, and rough texture. The contrast between the two makes for an arresting appearance.
