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.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
