The Blue Collection

As a cool color, blue evokes feelings of calmness, nobility, coolness, and tranquility. It is highly suitable for use in a variety of everyday items especially in summer.

Blue is featured prominently in Katsushika Hokusai's The Great Wave off Kanagawa. Mizu iro "pale aqua color," has been frequently used in summer kimonos since the Edo period (1603 CE - 1868 CE ). The color kon "navy blue," represented by indigo, conveys a sense of calm and sophistication and has been widely used in daily life.

You can find blue tablewares like sometsuke bowls and tea cups, the beautiful Tobe long plate and the elegant blue glaze Kutani vase all in Musubi Kiln.
