Ruri Yakishime Kaleidoscope Kaleidoscope The Ruri Yakishime technique, which is Hataman Touen's original technique used for coffee bowls, is different from the paints we usually use.
Arrived at the end of trial and error, this technique enables the expression of Hataman Touen's original clear azure color, further expanding the framework of traditional expression.
The kaleidoscope-like kaleidoscope pattern is designed on the entire surface, and each flower is carefully hand-painted by craftsmen to bring together the best of Imari Nabeshima ware techniques.
Karaka is a flower pattern that was popular in China during the Tang dynasty, and was used in Japan during the Nara period due to its influence. It is a splendid pattern that combines several kinds of plant motifs such as lotus, palmetto, and peony.
The design consists of a lotus flower and peonies in the center of the design, which is surrounded by double and triple wreaths with fan-shaped lateral flower patterns connected by arcs. It is characterized by the fact that it spreads concentrically in multiple layers from the center toward the outside. Since ancient times, it has been mainly used as a pattern for weft brocade.
At Hataman Touen, our skilled artisans, carrying forward the refined traditions of Imari Nabeshima ware, meticulously handcraft each piece, ensuring the Sarasa pattern's timeless allure comes to life in every detail.
