What do you imagine when you hear "Okinawa"?
Okinawa is one of Japan's leading tourism prefectures. In addition to the sea, there are many pleasures, including the World Heritage Site Shuri Castle, a number of archeological sites related to the Ryukyu Kingdom, and the time to flow calmly in the superb view of nature. And one of the other things to forget is crafts. It is said that techniques were transmitted because the trade with the Satsuma Domain, China, Southeast Asia, and India was popular during the Ryukyu Kingdom, and crafts such as Yachimun, Sanshin, dyed fabrics, and Ryukyu lacquer ware were created.
The work introduced this time is Yumiko Kaneshiro who makes Yachimun. Yachimun means a pottery in Okinawan dialect. At first, Kinjo continued to produce monotone vessels. However, the use of colorful colors for special classes for junior high school students has led to a fresh color that floats the scene of Okinawa. Therefore, the work born is the "Corango Blue Vessel".
The blue color that is deprived of eyes is drawn in. That alone is beautiful enough, but the coral blue bowl has another hidden charm. It is a "glittering texture like a sandy beach". In the process of firing and cooling, the growing glass -like crystals grow creates a unique beauty. Even if you arrange a dish with dishes on the table or use it in a mug or mini cup for a short break, it will be a bright feeling or a resort feeling in Okinawa.
Why don't you realize the charm of coral blue?
