Rinkuro Kiln Old Imari Akadami Plants Mokko-shaped Small Bowl

JPY ¥6,000

This mokko-shaped small bowl features a modern interpretation of the traditional classic patterns of old Imari. Mokko is the name for a round squarish shape and is considered an auspicious shape which represents family prosperity.

This bowl is made by Rinkuro Kiln from Hasami ware, which is light, durable and easy-to-use. Hasami ware is popularly used in both restaurants and homes.

"Aka" means red and "dami" is the name for the technique where the artist first outlines the area to be painted with a thin brush and then fills in the remaining space with a larger brush with different shades of the same color. This technique can only be done beautifully by a highly skilled artisan. 

The center of the bowl is designed with plants painted in an elegant blue color. And the sides of the bowl are decorated with festive and gorgeous patterns high-lighted with gold paint. 

This bowl can be used to serve dishes with a sauce or a soup. It can also be used to serve a small salad or to plate cooked vegetables like edamame. A versatile yet very elegant item that will brighten up your table.
