Due to their many seeds, gourds are traditionally perceived as auspicious symbols of good fortune and perpetuity. When dried, gourds became durable natural vessels used as ladles, flasks, or even musical instruments. This dried gourd tool is perforated with holes for use as a strainer, used to dispense thin dough into boiling water to make fresh noodles. Set on a custom steel mount, the strainer displays a graphic sculptural form and organic warmth of texture.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
