Bizan Kiln Hokusai Wave Kutani Round Plate
The plate features a painting of Hokusai's "The Great Wave off Kanagawa".
Throughout his life, Hokusai painted waves as the main subject of his paintings along with Mount Fuji. Hokusai's expression of the ever-changing movement of water captures the hearts of those who see it, even in modern times.
Each piece is handcrafted by an artisan of Kutani ware. It is painted with Japanese color paints using a brush, as you can see the painted part is slightly thickened.
With the combination of Kutani ware with the masterpiece of the genius artist Hokusai Katsushika, the bowl has truly an eye-stopping charm for anyone.
The size is great for serving side dish, breads, desserts and fruits. It also makes a perfect home decoration when used with an attached stand.
