It was love at first sight when we came across this gorgeous bowl. In Japan cherry blossoms symbolize good fortune and are also an emblem of love, affection and represents spring it is with this in mind that ARTEL presents the Sakura collection. Its flowers are nearly pure white, tinged with the palest pink and the creation of this collection requires a painstaking seven-step process. After each piece is mouth-blown it is cased with a second layer of white crystal, the Sakura flowers are then created by sandblasting off almost the entire layer of white crystal with only the white blossoms and branches remaining. Next each piece is acid etched to give it a pearl finish, and each blossom hand-engraved. Lastly, each blossom and branch is hand-painted. The result is a design that blends the traditional with the modern to create another signature ARTEL design.
The unique shape of our Kirschner Bowl makes it perfect for use as either a centerpiece or serving bowl for salads, fruits, or desserts.
