This is a pair of sophisticated Yunomi glasses with Japanese traditional painting by a Kyo Yaki artisan. These can be used for serving a wide variety of food and drink from Japanese tea or sake to ice cream and parfait and are perfect for everyday use or special occasion. They will expand in application depending on your idea. Of course, these glasses can be used not only in the summer season but throughout the year.
The form is based on traditional Yunomi having a curved edge at the mouth. This shape is said to improve upon the subtle and exquisite flavor of tea.
This drawing pattern is designed in the motif of maple leaves in spring and autumn which are both well appreciated in Japan. KAEDE means fresh green maple leaf and MOMIJI means red color maple leaf. A translucent stream is drawn on the bottom. The drawing pattern creates a feeling of calm, and the relaxed scene invokes the comfortable murmur of a brook. Gold color pigment modestly and courtly adorns and adds an extra touch of class. This drawing pattern inexplicably projects an image of cool in summer and warmth in winter respectively.
Patterns are drawn on the outside surface of the glass. The impression of viewing from the inside is interestingly different because these patterns are viewed through the glass.
This sophisticated tumbler glass will certainly add unique atmosphere to a table, and make any moment special.
