The cherry blossom bento has an eye catching design, not unlike a kimono. the material under the seal is actually printed cloth.
Due to different sections being used all designs are a little different.

This is a vintage Matcha bowl from the 60's.
The black finish might seem simple, but when viewed from various angles you can see many patterns.
It comes wrapped in a yellow cloth in a box made of paulownia wood
It is stored this way for protection from wear and only taken out when used, thus it is still in immaculate condition after 50 years.
Oribe Furate was a Daimyo (Feudal Lord) and a master of the tea ceremonies during the Momoyama era (1573 - 1603) and inspired this type of Mino-ware.
Oribe-ware has distinctive characteristics including a green glaze and unbalanced lines that resemble dripping water. Many of the designs are based on every day life and natural environments around us.
The uneven finish of this style of ceramic has come to be seen in Jpanese culture as having a richly expressive beuty.
Mango served on a leaf shaped plate.
The ceramic cracks during the glazing process to give a unique effect.
We call this cracking Kannyu in Japanese.
