Ume Soup Bowls for "Suimono"
YAMADA HEIANDO is a Japanese lacquerware brand with more than 90 years of history and traditions. Founded in 1919 in Tokyo Japan we have always been serving the finest lacquered products varying largely from classic set of tableware to modern line of stationery.
What is URUSHI?
All of YAMADA HEIANDO's products from classic set of tableware to modern line of stationery are finished with a traditional Japanese technique of lacquer coating. The technique applies sap of a specific lacquer tree called URUSHI (Rhus Verniciflua).
Traditional Authentic One and Only.
Of YAMADA HEIANDO's over 400 items we would classify these "suimono" soup bowls as the best of the best - traditional authentic one and only. They are the very way to feel what Japan is about.
Your Favourite Design in Your Favourite Colour.
Ume ( 梅 Plum )
A plum has long been one of the favourite flowers of the Japanese for its pink colour and sweet scent. It gives seemingly opposite images of innocence and strong fibre at the same time both from how it flourishes during the winter.
Genuine Materials from Nature.
Materials for this item are 100% natural.
Typical examples of lacquerware were ones with finishing called MAKI-E. It is a traditional Japanese technique of gilding to draw three-dimensional pictures and designs on a lacquered surface.
PLUM FLOWERS in Vivid Colours and Smooth Strokes.
Hand-painted by using "iro urushi" (colour lacquer). Our craftsmen mix raw lacquer with dyes just before starting painting so that they can adjust the mixing combinations depending on the day's temperature and humidity.
CLOUDS with Faded Nuance of Delicate Sparkles.
Finished with a special type of "maki-e" technique called "byakudan finishing." A design is first drawn in silver powder and then paint-coated with urushi lacquer adding gentle nuance to the overall colour and texture.
Size to Hand-Hold and Sip.
