The Tea Set is an edition of the artist and designer Rain Wu, who was hosted in residence in 2018 at the Foundation.
The Tea Set is a set of ceramic objects made of sandstone by Rain Wu in 2016 and presented at London’s Design Museum, Tate Modern and the Woodruff Art Center, Atlanta (USA).
With The Tea Set, the artist wishes to give a personal tribute to the cultural history of tea tradition in British everyday life through a contemporary ceremony inspired by an Asian ritual.
