Haku Furidashi Blue

Regular price £70.00 Sale

In Japan, a furidashi is a small container to keep sweets for the tea ceremony. This intricately detailed blue Haku Furidashi was created by Hashimura by burning a thin layer of coloured glass onto the surface of the object and then scratching away to achieve a Japanese paper-like finish. In this context, haku refers to the thin layer that is applied to the surface of the piece. 

The lid is made of dried sweet corn’s skin, which is commonly used for furidashis during tea ceremony at picnics. Not many corn skin craftsmen are left in Japan, and Hashimura asks one of the few remaining ones to match the lid to the containers he makes. He likes using corn skin as it matches very well with glass.
