Cold Mountain wares are inspired by the poet Han Shan (Cold Mountain) who lived circa 800 AD. These wares are intended to evoke the sensations derived from reading his timeless poems.


Bright water shimmers like crystal,

Translucent to the furthest depth.

Mind is free of every thought

Unmoved by the myriad things.

Since it can never be stirred

It will always stay like this.

Knowing, this way, you can see

There is no within, no without.
