Produced by Zhang Jin Rong, a bamboo craftsman from Taiwan. It serves not only as a home for your favorite tea utensils, but also an ornamental display of your taste. The ware exhibits truly fine workmanship of the creator with its consistent thickness of the bamboo strips and the evenly aligned joints.
Zhang Jin Rong was originally engaged in the aquarium industry. The opportunity for him to enter the industry of bambooware making was the time that he passed by a bamboo shop by chance to take pictures out of curiosity. He found himself very interested in bamboo craftsmanship and wanted to become an apprentice. He then visited the shop again with his own tools, and finally started his apprenticeship after seeking consent from the store owner.
His master emphasised on fundamental skills and required Zhang to make sixty small bamboo chairs as practice, before he could start crafting other bamboo utensils. After four years of apprenticeship, Zhang established his own studio in Xinying, Tainan. Aspiring for perfection, he prefers to hand-pick and chop bamboo by himself in order to identify the most suitable materials.
