The Flowing Incense collection showcases the creative fusion of high-tech ceramic and special handcrafted techniques. Each piece invites the viewer to follow its decorative movement, visually and spiritually contemplating the abstract white space. The ring, in particular, stands out not only for its elegant organic form but also for its dual functionality as an incense burner.
When worn as a piece of jewelry, the Flowing Incense ring captivates with its graceful curves and intricate details. However, when the wearer seeks a moment of relaxation and meditation, the ring can be transformed into an incense burner. By inserting an incense stick into the ring, shaped like a mountain, the wearer is transported into a scene of mountain watching and contemplation. As the incense burns, the top of the ring emits stretches of smoke, creating a serene ambiance.
The realization of the Flowing Incense design is made possible through the innovative Flowing Lithography Ceramic technology. This cutting-edge technique combines the precision of high-tech ceramic production with the artistry of handcrafted techniques. The result is a collection of jewelry pieces that seamlessly blend tradition and technology, offering a unique sensory experience to the wearer.
The Flowing Incense collection, with its emphasis on the Chinese ritual of incense burning, showcases the rich cultural heritage of China while embracing modern design and technology. The combination of ancient symbolism and contemporary aesthetics makes these jewelry pieces truly one-of-a-kind.
Yao Xiong, the visionary behind the Flowing Incense collection, has successfully captured the essence of Chinese complexity and abstraction in these innovative designs. By pushing the boundaries of traditional jewelry making and incorporating the Flowing Lithography Ceramic technology, Xiong has created a collection that not only serves as a fashion statement but also as a tool for relaxation and spiritual contemplation.
The Flowing Incense collection has received recognition for its exceptional design. In 2023, it was awarded the Iron A' Design Award in the Jewelry, Eyewear, and Watch Design category. This prestigious accolade is a testament to the collection's well-designed, practical, and innovative nature, meeting professional and industrial requirements. The Flowing Incense designs are respected for integrating industry best practices and competent technical characteristics, providing fulfillment and positive feelings to the wearer and contributing to a better world.
