Yoshita Kasho Wave Beaten Beach Glass Natsume Matcha Container
The Yoshita Kasho Glass Natsume Matcha Container depicts the unique araiso “wave-beaten beach” design, a symbolic depiction of a seashore impacted by waves. This artistic representation combines rocks, sand, pebbles, and water, where the waves are elegantly painted with green lacquer, and the shores are depicted using mother-of-pearl shells.
The lid, crafted from keyaki "zelkova" wood and finished with a fukiurushi “wiped lacquer” technique, complements the glass body, enhancing its natural allure and elegance.
Designed for durability, the gold leaf is protected by a glass layer, making it resistant to scratches and suitable for everyday use. Unlike typical glassware used mainly in summer, this tea caddy's comprehensive decoration allows it to be a delightful addition to tea sessions in any season.
The thickness of the glass enhances the brilliance of the gold and silver foil, contrasting beautifully with the green of the matcha, offering a unique aesthetic experience. This tea caddy has gained popularity as an innovative alternative in tea ceremonies, blending modernity with the timeless elegance of Japanese tea culture.
