Designing the Samurai Teahouse

2020-04-23 by David

The new samurai-themed set has been a little delayed by printer problems and the recent virus-related scarcity of replacement parts, but at long last we have finished concept images to show you.....



The bar has definitely been raised for this new teahouse set! The level of detail has been increased even further, with some very realistic textures inside and outside the house.

 

The set contains:

 

  • Thatched teahouse
  • Fence and gate set
  • Ornamental rock garden with some great accessories
  • AND a brand new LED lantern model!





The fence sections are modelled after authentic bamboo and stick fences from Kyoto, tied to posts with rough twine. Straight and corner sections are included, plus a wooden gate with a thatched roof and sliding doors. Various types of gate door are included.

 

The garden contains a large cluster of rocks, perfect for covering in moss, plus a smaller rock feature with a stone lantern on the top. You can easily wire this lantern with an LED light, using cheap tealights - more on that in a few days!





The teahouse itself features a unique circular window, with can easily be fitted with paper if you want total realism. Other authentic touches include the small entrance door, kettle, and tokonoma alcove with wall scroll. The scroll has Japanese kanji characters sculpted on it.





At the back of the teahouse is a small balcony, which can be accessed via the sliding screen doors. Apart from the floors, the teahouse building is pretty much a one-piece print!

 

The last pieces of the set are currently being printed up, so we should have complete photos for you in a few days!
