(posted; Japanese culture page)
Early last week, I've been to the "Ceramics exhibition of the greeting New Year" held at the long-established Department Store in my city. The works of Ceramic Artist Ms. Hirano this time were featured the color "Vermilion" or "Yellowish Red". The color is used for the gate way or the bridge at the shrine and the temple in Japan as it's considered a sacred color. I posted about it here.
Originally, the word "brightness" came from the color of the "Sun" (Vermilion "朱色、shu-iro”, yellowish red). And believed that the color vermilion prevent disaster from happening and have the power against alchemy. And this color is used for the ink of our seal as you can see in the link of my post.
|I wished to make her works bigger; she approved to be in my blog♪|
I've bought the two bowls for *Year-Crossing Soba-Noodles*, the ones you can see in the picture above. my husband was happy to see them♪
I AM really thankful to my friends for the kindness, friendship and heartwarming comments to me through the year; I wish you Blessing and Healthy Year 2015 ♡♡♡
