Washizome Sakuramon Tsubo (和紙染桜文壺)
This is the Arita ware crafted by NAKAO, Hidezumi (中尾英純).
He soaked traditional papers into blue paint called gosu, and expressed the cherry petals pattern.
We feel something harmoious or peaceful from the sprinkled petals.
Washizome technique :
Tearing absorbent paper called washi to pieces.
Making such papers layers to produce the pattern while giving out color gradation.
Height : 23 cm
Diameter : 18.8 cm
He cuts water-absorbent Japanse washi paper to the proper size, place the paper on the bisque ware, and soak it with cobalt blue colour. Please enjoy the elegant overlapping patterns.
