Chinese Knot Cup / Craft Design
A huge red blessing is woven into the cup, bringing a cupful of happiness.
The Chinese Knot Cup combines the art of Chinese knotting and lacquer. The mug is ornamented with a Chinese knot, which is painted with natural lacquer. The skill not only retains the beautiful texture of the cotton thread but also applies a waterproof effect.
In the traditional handicraft of Chinese knotting, all the basic knotting methods were named according to their forms and meanings, containing symbolic meanings of good fortune and blessing. In this work, the red knot which circles around the mug represents a gift of good fortune. Furthermore, it also features a practical aspect. When users make tea, they can wrap the cotton thread around the knot to prevent the label from slipping off.
