Skull tea infusers by Lee Jinyoung
Like I mentioned before, people have a thing with skulls and the human mind. The story behind these silicone tea skulls gives an insight in perception.
These silicone skulls are a 100% safe to use for foods. Just pull the teeth down and the skull opens, put your loose tea in it, close the skull and just make a cup of tea like you normally would!
Lee Jinyoung, the designer behind these silicone tea skulls, got inspired by an ancient story about a Buddhist master called “Wonhyo”, who was traveling to China,.
“On a stormy day Wonhyo and his colleagues took shelter in a cave. During the night, Wonhyo was overcome with thirst, and reached out an grasped what he preceived to be a gourd, and drinking from it he was refreshed with a draught of cool water. When he woke up the next morning he realized that their shelter was actually an ancient tomb littered with human skulls, and he had drunk from a human skull.”
Lee Jinyoung,says “the silicone skull reflects the desire to feel Wonhyo’s significant meaning of life and have fun while taking a short time to drink tea in daily life”.
