You can’t help but be enamored by these unique Japanese bowls’ repetitive designs! With a blue and white pattern on each bowl’s interior and exterior, these bowls come together to form an enchanting bowl set
that will look good together on any dining table or kitchen shelf. These Japan-made bowls all have designs of beautiful patterns or elements that you might find in nature and are the perfect medium size for holding servings of noodles, donburi, salad, or even your favorite dessert.
One Japanese bowl flaunts a design of strong bamboo stems growing together in a grove. A white background accentuates these blue bamboo plants and their stems and leaves are carefully detailed to give this bowl a traditional and professional look. In Japanese culture, bamboo is a symbol of prosperity because the plant has an incredibly sturdy root structure. The second noodle bowl features a multitude of blue lines on white that start off not touching each other at the rim and eventually begin crossing each other to create a crosshatch pattern in the bowl’s bottom interior. The next bowl features an arabesque design of spotted karakusa vines with blue and white peonies growing on them. The combination of karakusa vines, which are a motif of nobility, and peonies, which are a symbol of prosperity and good fortune, make this intricate dark blue bowl packed with meaning. The last Japanese bowl features a design of maple leaves overlapping each other, similar to a pile of leaves that have fallen during the autumn season. In Japan, maple leaves are a symbol of order, peace, and serenity.
All of these bowls are glazed to perfection and are incredibly smooth to the touch. However, all of their designs subtly bump outward, making each bowl have an extra layer of texture. To contrast the blue and white of each bowl, the rims are glazed with a dark brown color. Another common feature found on each Japanese bowl is that the bottom footing is left a plain white with a thin blue ring at the start of the footing. A white ring of exposed ceramic that the bowls are made from is found at the bottom of each component of this set. Dishwasher and microwave safe, these wonderful bowls are made to be aesthetically pleasing and convenient.
