High and Higher Bamboo Porcelain Vase
Clinging tightly to the mountainside, roots deeply embedded in fractured rock, standing strong against all things, even the wind can cause no harm.
Zhen Banqiao, “Bamboo and Rock”
FRANZ was inspired by this poem, which describes the strength of life embedded so deeply in a rock foundation that despite harsh circumstances, it would not bend. This piece portrays life after being refined by difficult times, celebrates the happiness of hard-won achievements, and symbolizes blessings piling up as high as growing bamboos!
