Table Setting #180
Sushi with Stylish Maki-e Glass Rectangle Plates

Sushi is a traditional and highly representative Japanese dish, where delicate slices of fish are placed atop vinegar-seasoned rice. The vibrant colors of the fish against the white rice create a contrasting yet harmonious visual. Commonly plated on porcelain or wooden plates, we chose exquisite transparent glass plates for our table setting. The decorated glass complements the texture of the fish, not only beautifully presenting the sushi's quality but also adding a touch of sophistication to the overall ambiance.

1. Translucence and Taste: Elevating Your Sushi Experience

Sushi, a year-round delicacy, is beautifully showcased in this table setting. By highlighting elegance and authenticity, an ambience akin to a high-end restaurant can be recreated at your own home.

The black, smooth tabletop reflects the tableware items placed on top, creating a tranquil, water-like transparency. The surface of the clear glass plates is exceptionally smooth, significantly enhancing the color and texture of the sushi. The combination of gold on the plates and the overall black scheme harmonizes beautifully, exemplifying a classic and upscale color palette. The Wakasa lacquerware chopsticks adorned with detailed mother-of-pearl inlays and delicate color nuances, enrich the setting's radiance.

The minimalist luxury of both the maki-e glass rectangle plate and the black glossy table, enhances the appreciation of the glassware and the texture of sushi.

Carefully crafted by skilled craftspeople, the Yoshita Kasho Glass Maki-e Rectangular Plate stands as a prime example of fine artisanship, seamlessly blending superior glass quality with innovative decorative techniques.

Placing the maki-e glass rectangle plate on a tabletop that resembles water's surface creates an ice floe illusion, elevating the sushi's freshness. The plate's crystal-clear surface is complemented by decadent golden hues with hand-painted classic Japanese motifs.
