This drawing pattern is designed in the motif of a traditional painting called TAKE TORAZU, which was originally drawn by Tanyu Kano (1602 - 1672). He was the great ancestor who revived the KANO school which played the most significant role in Japanese painting history.
TAKEZU of this name means a painting of Bamboo. Bamboo symbolizes congratulations and best wishes. In Japan, bamboo is also a symbol of patience because bamboo is flexible - and integrity because bamboo is straight from root to tip.
This drawing pattern is designed in the motif of a traditional drawing pattern called KAKUZU, which was originally drawn by Hohitsu Sakai (1761 - 11829). Hohitsu Sakai established a basis for one of the most famous traditional painting schools, the RIN school, along with Kohrin Ogata. SAN of this name means three, and KAKUZU means drawing pattern of cranes, which is auspicious. It is said that KAKUZU is one of the masterpieces of Hohitsu Sakai.
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.
