Built in the 1920s, this shophouse used to be a book shop called The Lucky Book Store. The ground floor was the retail area, while the upper level was partitioned for storage. Behind this shophouse was a long, narrow concreted vacated land. Surrounded by 3 to 4-storey service apartments and semi-detached houses, a portion of its side faces a back lane, franked by houses on both sides.
AGI members were invited to create wrap-around designs for a series of teacups and saucers. The designs were fired on to bone china at the Potteries of Stoke-on-Trent by the ceramist Michael Czerwinski. The results were displayed at the Flow Gallery and a limited edition catalogue was given to AGI showcasing all 130 unique designs that each portrayed a very personal interpretation of the brief. The catalogue also serves as a legacy document with a special editorial celebrating the rituals and heritage of tea drinking.
