In the past, people shared a large cake due to material scarcity
Nowadays, people change to eat small pieces for the sake of health
The fine carving on cakes remains unchanged
Sometimes convex and sometimes concave
Outlining each hope in the inner heart
We are so lucky living in an age of plenty
What we are looking for is self- affirmation and fulfilling of dreams
Maybe unhappy temporarily, while maybe joyful
We are always not good at words and only touch on lightly
However, what we really expect in deep heart is the happy life with family
Sit down and have a cup of tea
Start a narration with a short rest
In 2012, the Shu&W’s Cerareleased the Moon Tea Series for the first time. The simple concept represents the profound culture significance of Taiwan.
The course of the first release was not smooth, since the combination of glazing color and clay results in a poor kilning rate, which then was aborted for a long time.
During the period, we still attempted to seek for suggestions from various means. Fortunately, we received lots of positive feedbacks which made our product improvement more skillful.
In 2013, the Shu&W’s Ceratakes the users’ thoughts into account and adds with its own experiences in life, to render the Moon Tea Series more meaningful ideas and concepts. The material adopts the purple clay-like colored clay, to display the fine handicraft in small family workshop in Yingge District.
The pattern design conveys the expectation and thoughts in many people’ deep heart, displaying the Happiness, Prosperity, Longevity, Joys and Harvest, which expresses the Taiwanese’s reserved manners but emotional characteristic via the design concept.
【The Secret Passage of the Shu&W’s Cera】
The natural terrain in Yingge District makes the place here sometimes zigzag and sometimes rough, thus some family workshops hide behind these winding paths, which is not so easy to reach.
One of our cooperation partners is called “Brother Wang”. He is a real character and quite low-profile, who lives with his wife in the mountain privately to manufacture teapots for seniors, with a fine and explicit handwork.
Once we placed the mold in a wrong way by accident, he asked his wife to remind us immediately, because the mold of teapot for seniors shall be treated more carefully, or else the cover can’t be fastened tightly.
Another partner is a seniority of Shu Family who specializes in making small tea cup for famous tea brand and is as mysterious as Brother Wang. His house is also his workshop at the same time, and we went there for five times by which we remembered it location.
Both of them fully support us to release the new products smoothly, give us many instructions and ask us to use a magnifier even when checking the details of mold. In my opinion, it might be the greatest assistance for the seniorities to support the younger generations.
