May your first dream of the New Year be of Fujisan, a Hawk, and an Eggplant! In Japan, it is particularly lucky to dream of these three items on the first night of the new year, and now you can enjoy this auspicious gift set all year round.
FUJI WAN RICE BOWL
This beautiful rice bowl has been shaped in the likeness of the symbol of Japan, Fujisan.
Just as the expression of Fujisan changes with each passing day, the hand-applied glaze on each piece is kiln-fired to make each bowl a unique work of art.
We have designed this piece for those seeking to reach new heights in their life or for the couple longing to achieve a new summit in their relationship.
From the town of Hasami in Japan’s Nagasaki Prefecture, famous for its exquisite porcelain, enjoy this Fuji Wan as it brings to your table the beautiful contrast of white and naturally-dripped colored glazes.
EGGPLANT KOBACHI SERVING DISH

This Kobachi serving dish in the shape of an eggplant is finished with a uniquely textured cobalt matte glaze.
Use it to serve pickled vegetables, greens boiled in Japanese broth, ratatouille, or any of your favorite side dishes.
HAWK FEATHER CHOPSTICK REST
