“Vessel of Offerings” depicts teacup sets that convey a photographic dialogue for prayers and offerings to our ancestors. These porcelain vessels hold tea or water, which is symbolic of “holding conversations”. Tea ceremonies are customary practice in China and Japan, where the ceremony represents harmony, respect, purity, and tranquility.
