Key points of this table setting

1. Waves of Turquoise 

A table setting where Japanese cuisine takes on a French flair can create a fascinating blend of tradition and innovation. Fresh sashimi and seafood appetizers, inspired by French culinary techniques, are beautifully plated on vibrant Shigaraki ware plates with a Turkish glaze from the Malibu series. 

Embracing the marine theme, the Hirota Blue Fubuki sake set graces the table with its soft silhouette of hand-formed glass and stunning blue hue, also reminiscent of the ocean.

The cool and muted colors of Kinzan Kiln's Kutani ware beautifully balance out the striking turquoise, creating a harmony of colors that captures the essence of summer. 

Subtle touches of gold, showcased in the Gold Heart Leaf Sauce Plate and the rims of the Kutani ware, infuse an aura of opulence into the ensemble. Gold's versatility allows it to complement a wide range of colors and materials, easily adapting to different themes and occasions.

2. Shigaraki Ware from Hissan Pottery

The Turkish glaze of Hissan Pottery evokes the essence of Japanese artistry, where each plate's surface undulates like the ebb and flow of the sea.

Inspired by the ever-changing seascape, the Turkish glaze of Hissan Pottery breathes life into each plate, infusing your dining experience with the lively spirit of the ocean.
