Hirota Weeping Cherry Blossom Edo Kiriko Cut Glass Bowl

JPY ¥24,000

Only 6 pieces in stock!

This bowl is adorned with the distinctly Japanese weeping cherry blossom, expertly carved by artisan Otomo Kenji using the Edo Hanakiriko technique. The bowl's hue is an ancient color, imbued with a subtle yellow tint, and aims to evoke a nostalgic atmosphere, making it perfectly suited for everyday use.

It not only showcases the color and state of the food within but also suits various tabletop materials. Enjoying the beautiful reflection it casts on the table is also a visual delight. Ideal for serving salads, desserts, or holding fruits, candies, or ice cream.

Edo Hanakiriko, a variant of the Edo Kiriko technique, was introduced to Japan from England during the Meiji era (1868 CE-1912 CE). It requires the masterful skills of an artisan to etch intricately detailed patterns onto the glass surface. This method is characterized by its use of depth and contrast to depict the elegant cuts of flora.

Only the branches are preliminarily sketched in the rendering of cherry blossoms and branches. Leaves and petals are directly drawn based on intuition, giving each bowl truly unique. Not every inch of the surface is covered in patterns, leaving some spaces blank, which reflects the Japanese cultural appreciation for the beauty of negative space.

The cherry blossoms, a motif long cherished by the Japanese, make this Edo Hanakiriko bowl a delightful choice for personal use or as a thoughtful gift.
