Made in Japan, this elegant bowl features a wave design that recalls a 19th-century stencil or katagami in The Met collection. These stencils were used to create patterns on silk kimonos or other textiles using resist-dying techniques dating back to the 7th century. Traditionally, katagami are made of cut sheets of washi paper and feature intricate designs, rendering them extremely fragile. Whether she’s a lover of textiles, Japanese art, or nautical motifs, this elegant bowl is sure to please.
