BUTTERFLY

BUTTERFLY

Featuring a traditional pattern of indigo blue butterflies on a warm white background. The butterfly symbolises eternity, womanhood and love, and is often depicted as a spirit guide in Japanese folk tales.

The Ko Family kiln specialises in crafting small items that require patience and care.  Tiny dishes, tea and sake cups plus their popular single flower vases can always be seen lined up on drying shelves in various stages of production. Ko-san's parents hand-finish all items - smoothing bases, painting edges or perfecting motifs with experienced, steady hands.
