p l a y g r o u n d - home deco set
Inspired by the playground in the 90s which the play equipments (slide, staircase and platforms in different heights) were combined to an installation.
The staircase decoration as staircase, the vase refers to the platform, then further up will be the tealight holder with smooth concave surface as slide.
Home deco in fair-faced concrete, an implicit way to illustrate the childhood memory.
water drop - incense holder
Water is the origin of life of the universe. So we use water as the main design element.
It is shaped as a water drop and it’s gradually narrowing down in the middle to the bottom which the incense ash will be collected. It looks just like a water drop hitting a pool of water and all becomes one.
It’s the harmony of nature.
Shabibi Sheep Workshop......
Surrounded by infinite number of skyscrapers in Hong Kong and amazed by the clean and simplicity of fair faced concrete designs. Concrete is a very versatile material but why in Hong Kong, concrete is only being seen in architecture?
In most of the cases, concrete is covered by other material or paint on top that makes people totally forget its existence and value.
Our creations show the authentic color and texture of concrete. Let this neglected material be the main material or even the sole material.
Through our concrete creations, we would like to inspire the general public to be more creative and to think out of the box.

concrete Miffy coasters

fair faced concrete
Fair faced concrete is a concrete surface that on completion of the forming process, requires no further treatment other than curing.
No painting nor patching to cover up any defects.
So the technique and perfect control in mixing, pouring and curing is the key to achieve a piece of quality fair faced concrete.
One need to touch and feel it in person in order to enjoy this highest level of craftsmanship.

- Without formal studies in art, she can be relaxed from the theory
- Creativity is a matter of sense, not how many hours spent in sitting in a classroom to learn from textbooks
- Skill is developed based on trial and error while there is no error in art, every “error” experienced is just another skill gained
