Washizome Sakuramon Ichirinzashi (和紙染桜文一輪差)
This is the Arita ware crafted by NAKAO, Hidezumi (中尾英純).
He attached pieces of traditional papers to the body and expressed the cherry petals pattern.
We feel something harmoious or peaceful from the work.
Washizome technique :
Tearing absorbent paper called washi to pieces.
Making such papers layers to produce the pattern while giving out color gradation.
Height : 17.4 cm
Diameter : 7.2 cm
It comforts us to see artworks with kind blue-color scene. Enjoy the gradation and the contrast of both indigo and white color.
