Arita Porcelain Lab Yazaemon Flower and Bird Kobachi Bowl
This set of five gorgeous and elegant small bowls are unique design to Arita ware. Small bowls with vivid hue are ideal for daily use and go well with any dishes such as boiled vegetables and simmered dishes.
The rim of the bowls reminds us of flower petals, giving an elegant look. The shape of the bowl has been handed down from generation to generation in the Yazaemon kiln. Items with distinctive curves such as this bowl are made by first making a base by pressure casting and then carved by skilled craftsman to give the final refined touch.
The design depicted inside of the bowl is a traditional pattern of bamboo, Japanese pampas grass, and peonies. The bamboo is a symbol of flexibility and unbreakable strength, the pampas grass is a symbol of the vitality of plants, and the peony is a symbol of good fortune that is meant to ward off evil spirits. The auspicious motifs have been widely used in Arita ware porcelain by the potters of the past, who wished to enrich the lives of those who use it, both materially and spiritually.

ABOUT ARITA WARE
Arita Ware, made in the town of Arita in Saga Prefecture, is the oldest porcelain production area in Japan's history. Arita porcelain is characterized by its translucent white porcelain surface, dyeing using "Gosu" (indigo pigment), and gorgeous red painting using glassy overglaze pigments (red, green, yellow, purple, and blue). The pottery is highly durable and is produced in a wide variety of styles, from fine art to daily necessities. It was exported to Europe, where it was prized as fine art and called "white gold".
Arita Ware is also a prestigious brand that is admired by ceramicists from other regions as a representative porcelain production area.
