SINGAMA Hemp Leaf Seto Ware Bowl 7.2in
This bowl features the traditional Japanese hemp leaf pattern. The hemp leaf is considered as a symbol of good luck meant to ward off evil and is commonly used on kimono and tableware.
Employing a technique of "Sometsuke" (underglaze cobalt blue) painting on a base brilliantly fired to a pure white, each piece is meticulously crafted, embodying the essence of Seto Sometsuke ware.
Since the painting is done by the hands of artisans, no two pieces are exactly alike. Each stroke varies in thickness, neither too straight nor too rigid, exuding a gentle softness.
