This Matcha bowl is refined and elaborate work. Beautiful and lively SATSUKI flower azalea, which is colored white and pink, HANASHOHBU iris and the leaves of AOI hollyhock are carefully and boldly drawn on the surface of this bowl. The light green leaves accentuate the vigor of the HANA SHOHBU and the Matcha bowl. All flowers and leaves colored in gold add elegance and luxury to this Matcha bowl.

This Matcha bowl symbolizes the beginning of summer. SATSUKI azalea blooms in May. SATSUKI was the word for the month of May, on the old calendar used many years ago in Japan. That is why azalea is called SATSUKI. The flowers on the right are SATSUKI and the flowers on the left are HANASHOHBU iris. The leaves of AOI hollyhock are carefully painted on the surface of this Matcha bowl. Garnish by gold color pigment, which is not too gaudy but courtly and well balanced, brings a noble atmosphere.

The technique called GOHONDE, colorful lines of orange, is seen on the inside and outside of this bowl. It is impossible to fully control the contrasting density of GOHONDE, so that GOHONDE is a little different in each work. The refined white color of this bowl and GOHONDE colorful rings add balance and warmth to the atmosphere and emphasize the beauty of this bowl.

Compositions, painted brilliantly and delicately, create a cheerful aura of elegance and vibrant beauty. The noble and gracious painting technique is reserved for high grade Matcha bowls. The pigments used for this bowl are bright and elegant, and only used for high grade Matcha bowls. To consider these points, this is set at a very reasonable price.

Once you use this lovely bowl, your heart will certainly be filled with cheerful elegance and vibrant beauty.
