Ting is a rain collector for garden use. The top part is made of brass using the cymbal manufacturing technique. The brass sheet is hammered and heated by hand until it takes a curved and natural shape. As the raindrops fall on the top, a delicate music can be heard. The water is then collected in the ceramic vase and
may be used to water the indoor plants.
That project was developed during a Summer workshop with Chenya Wang from the Tsinghua University. Produced in a limited numbered edition.
