This piece is a vessel that resonates with my tenacity. Despite its modest size, the fang-like pattern adorning the walls conveys an assertive presence—an open mouth, poised to devour and articulate. Cloud-like formations adorn the sides, symbolizing strength in softness. This serves as a homage to the clouds dragons breathe, highlighting the inherent power found in gentleness. Through this vessel, it becomes a manifestation of resilience and the evolving strength within.
