Mother Red Gai Wan with Cups

Introducing our Mother Red Gaiwan set. Most of the Miao people have followed a structure of matriarchy in their communities. Women build houses and provide for the family while caring for the family and community. Their strength and wisdom are artistically expressed in the embroidery they create. Emblems include the phoenix, butterfly, and dragon - viewed as sacred spirits sent from Mother Earth to protect the people. In the embroidery showcased in the images, Mother Ma gifted the work to Rui during her learning about the indigenous history & culture of tea in 2015. Mother Ma was the protector of the Black Miao tribe in northeast Guizhou and sadly passed in 2019. She taught Rui that the dragon and phoenix emphasize the co-existence of gentleness and strength within a woman’s body, spirit, and soul - and that one cannot exist without the other. This tea-ware serves as a bold reminder of Mother Ma’s teachings as it empowers all who receive its wisdom. The colour inside and out reflects the embroidery and textures traditionally featured in the Buyi and Miao households.
