Ms. Kaori Walsh spent her childhood in Mie prefecture, but she now lives in Tokyo.
The composition series is inspired by a mixture of Japanese traditonal wooden craft called Yosegi marquetry and Mondrian paintings, as you may have noticed the similarities. She paints all of them by hand and each of them has slightly different disigns giving them more oiginality.
Considering that they are all hand crafted and painted, 2,800yen +tax for the cup is reasonable, I believe.
The small plate on the photo is 1,600yen + tax.
These are small sake cups called Ochoko and they are for drinking sake. The diameter is around 6.5cm. They can also be used for serving dip sauce etc.
The inside is coated with real gold, so when you drink sake out of this cup, you can see the beautiful golden ripple on the surface.
These are a collection of chopsticks and cutleries rest. They come in 4 different sizes and I just placed them like a modern art on a table. This reminds me of Frank Lloyd Wright somehow.
The longer ones from the left are cutleries rest and they are 1,000yen + tax each. The shorter one on the right hand side is chopsticks rest (800yen+tax) and the square one is 750yen +tax.
There are more new items.
This is an ashtray.
