Simple at first glance, there is a twist to this seemingly traditional design when conventional Chinese prosperous symbols have been replaced by icons we often see on social media, such as likes and hashtags. For example, the dragon at the centre is taking a selfie with its mobile phone. As we spend more and more time on social media, many of us are posting simply for a satisfactory like or comment from our friends. All of us are literally living for ‘likes’. ;)

From the dawn of time, tradesmen decorated Chinese porcelain with symbolic and auspicious ideas. Bat (fu 蝠) is a symbol of good fortune while deer (lu 鹿) symbolises the ability to reap rewards (lu 祿). The decorative details on Chinese porcelain reflect the hopes and wishes of the ancient Chinese people. Each generation holds a different set of expectations, and younger Millennials are driven by differentdesires today. Therefore, our work tries to combine traditional Chinese porcelain with popular culture, aiming to bring traditional crafts and blessings into everyday life.
