This elegant flower shaped bowl features hand-painted plum motifs and raised arabesque patterns. Hand-painted by a Kutani ware artist, Ms. Okanemasa Kasui.
The painting stands out beautifully on the white porcelain, as you can see the painted part is slightly thickened by using a brush for painting. A fine pattern is drawn on the foot, making it a beautiful bowl from any angle.
Both plum blossoms and arabesque are an auspicious motif, symbolizing “longevity” and "Prosperity".
Perfect as a serving bowl for salads, Nimono(simmered food), dessert, and fruits.
It is great for an everyday use as well as a gift for someone who loves Japanese arts and crafts.

Message from Okanemasa Kasui
Kutani ware is a fascinating ceramics, characterized by black lines and five colors of red, green, purple, yellow and dark blue on a gray-white ground. Attracted by the beauty of overglaze enamels, we have been learning the technique of overglazing and have been going through a daily process of trial and error. We will continue to make the most of the deep flavor of Kutani-ware, cherish our traditions, and aim for a new kind of Kutani ware I will continue to study while I am working. When the gentleness of the simple flowers decorate the vessels, I will put my heart and soul into my work so that you can enjoy a moment of peace of mind. I am drawing with all my heart.
