Golden Cloud, Sakura and Mt. Fuji Kutani Japanese Rice Bowl Pair
This beautiful pair of rice bowls depicts a spring scene of Mt. Fuji in springtime. It is painted by Kutani Ware artist Yoshinori Fukuda.
The golden glow of the warm sunlight, the fluttering petals of the Sakura(cherry blossoms), and the majestic Mt Fuji will make you feel refreshed and special every time you use this bowl.
The shape made on the potter's wheel is comfortable in the hand, and the slightly rough surface gives it a sense of stability. This rice bowl is an excellent choice for daily use at the dining table.
In Japan, there is a culture of giving rice bowls as a gift to married couples to celebrate their marriage. It's also perfect for use together with best friends, siblings, or parents and children.
As you can see in the picture, the two are slightly different sizes. It's a good idea to choose your favorite bowl according to the amount of rice each person eats.
