Sakura pink series by Mr. Nobuaki Honda 本田伸明

Mr. Nobuaki Honda (本田伸明) is a potter from Okinawa prefecture of Japan and his blue silhouette series have been popular at my store.


He recently introduced the new Sakura Pink series.

When sakura is painted, it is often colored with bright pink, but Someiyoshino (染井吉野) sakura tree, which is the most popular type of sakura in Japan, has very pale pink, which is closer to white.


The mug cups are colored with the pale pink the way Someiyoshino blossoms. Each cups have different shapes and have the unique handles. The lips are, then, colored with greenish brown like the sakura tree bark.

The mug cups are all 3,500yen + tax / each.


He also designed various shapes of vases with the same Sakura Pink color.


The prices of vases range from 5,000yen to 9,000yen + tax depending on the size.

The tallest one is about 22cm and the shortest one is about 15cm.


The bowl has the diameter of 12.5cm and the height is 7.5cm, and the price is 4,500yen+tax. It is like a salada bowl size, but it can also be used for soup etc.
