This set is a spin-off from an enjoyable collaboration with Wagokoro Mochi's owner Naho for their tableware.
We became friends through those days. I listened to her about Japanese food, dining, and other rituals, art, and general culture. She is a pure treasure to have around. Her kindness and her knowledge make her presence a treat for the gathered.
I did a sushi set to give this underappreciated dish the tableware it deserves. Good sushi is not much about the recipe but about a lot of patience to reach the needed skill. Of course, it takes fresh ingredients from both soil and the sea. It is a gift of nature. Rare are the dishes that are so tasty and healthy at the same time.
The decorations are done by hand. It is my interpretation of all I learned through Naho and what I learned through the decades of my fascination with the Far East.
My dearest pieces in this set are small bowls. Wide, shallow, and thin. Simply charming.
The set consists of the following:
1 big serving plate (32cm; 12.6in)
4 oval plates (21x12cm; 8.25x4.7in)
4 sauce bowls
4 cotton napkins, hand-printed by Vilenica
all in an elegant pale pink handmade and eco-friendly gift box
The set for two holds the same serving plate and two of each other pieces.
After your wish, we would gladly make this set for a different number of people.
