“Typical flowers of autumn such as chrysanthemums and bush clovers bring refreshing air of autumn. Dynamic curving line of water flow decorated with gold, gorgeous bloom of the chrysanthemum and the grid pattern of bamboo fence shows beautiful harmony.
“Kikusui (Kiku=chrysanthemum flower / Sui=water)” is one of good fortune motifs depicted with the flower floating on the water flow had been known as a magical medicine for long-life.”
The motifs were chosen from antique Kimonos from Edo era kept by the J. Front Retailing Archive Museum in Kyoto. The motifs express good fortune with traditional symbolism and with surprisingly modern taste. They tell the timeless spirit of celebration.
“Pine tree, bamboo and plum bloom are the most traditional and popular motif of good fortune.
Bending branch of pine tree and smooth line of bamboo expanding fully on four screen of the vase shows beautiful contrast. Gold decoration adds an accent on the plum bloom.
The texture of Kanoko Shibori (fine tie-dye technique of Kimono) is represented on the circle on the front side.“
