    When I look at this bowl I think it could only be Japanese.
    I am not good explaining this but it seems to have a very theatrical presence and for me looks like a prop for Kabuki, or a graphic for a Japanese comic or poster.

    The beautifully deep yellow, punctuated by a rich red is eye catching enough, but they had to add more! The back of the bowl has been pressed to make deep angled grooves that give the bowl a fantastic geometric effect. It is also very tactile.

    The bowl is not square or even symmetrical - it appears to us lop sided even.
    Believe me, that would have been deliberate.

    I love this one. So different, so Japanese.

    Roughly 22cm square (8.5in)

      Have fun there!
      It does look like a dawn sun - or setting sun on a bushfire day!

      Looks like something you'd see in the Japanese gangster movie TOKYO DRIFTER (1966), directed by Seijun Suzuki. GREAT PIECE, Karen. [;>)

      Not to be confused with the newer U.S.A. car movie, Tokyo Drift.

      Thanks Blade. I looked up the movie - love the graphical nature of it. And guess what? The main character is called Kurata!
