Artwork Title: Tea Pots, Bowl, Cups and Some Spoons
Artist Name: Mariko Jesse (Hong Kong)
Artwork Location: Cheung Sha Wan Station – Entrance adits
Form of Artwork: 8 groups of mural paintings on VE panels
Artwork Completion Date: December 2002
Artist’s Concept: Teapots, bowls, cups and some spoons which is a light hearted and friendly look at what’s in the kitchen cupboard, to reflect the nature of Cheung Sha Wan, a residential area.

The design concentrates on a few individual items such as teapots, cups and spoons of a very large scale, and draws attention to the importance of over-looked everyday things in life. With simplicity of shape, there can be a profusion of pattern and texture. Each object is made up of many tiles, which looked at on their own, can be very abstract, yet form a cohesive whole when looked at from a distance.
