- Rice bowls featuring designs by artist Tachibana Fumio
- 3 patterns available
- Designers collaborate with craftsmen to create an exceptional product
A leading product from Shiratakegama. The artist Fumio Tachibana designed the patterns used based on a motif of the ruffled borders used in letterpress printing. The design of each bowl is painstakingly applied by the craftsman’s hands using a transfer method called inban or stamping. These are outstanding pieces that compliment any dinner table.
Kagami Mirror: Thick blue rectangles arranged horizontally.
Madobe Window: Thin blue rectangles arranged vertically.
Hanakazari Flowers: mixture of graphic symbols streaming from rim of the bowl and runs inside the bowl as well.
Inban is one of the printing techniques used in Japan where a pattern is transferred from paper to porcelain. The craftsman wets the patterned “tensha-gami” (printing paper) then places it on unglazed pottery. After they are dried, the porcelain is glazed and baked to create a perfect little dish. Since they are handmade, each item is unique.
