"Hanakage" is one of Sakaida's most popular series. As the name suggests, this romantic work casts flower-like shadows on the table under a strong light source. Each piece has a gradation of pale colors at the bottom, and the way the colors are entangled in the shadows is also beautiful.
In the case of glasses, the edges are made very thin to make them more palatable, and the rims of bowls and vases are wrapped around the rims.
The popular flower plate comes in 3 sizes, large, medium and small.
There are also (small) and (medium) that are used in layers after the 7th photo .
A sense of stability is outstanding by having a center of gravity below. “Hanazara can also be used for Japanese-themed dishes like Rinkazara,” says Sakaida. It's the perfect dish for summer cooking.
The delicate curve of the lip, which is slightly warped like a flower petal, and the gap in the thickness of the glass in the center color are captivating.
You can feel the sharpness in the softness, the way the edges stand, and the soulful shape creation down to the smallest details.
Diameter: Approx. 25~26.5cm / Height: Approx. 2~2.5cm
