If you have negative pictures about Urushi lacquer wares, what is it? Is it about the maintenance and care of them? then we're here to help on this blog.
Or does it sound like a little bit tricky for you to go well with other tablewares you have?
Lacquer wares are made of natural materials which always brings harmony with any other. It actually spices up and brightens up your table or interiors depending how to use it.
This month I'd like to showcase the various ways of using beyond its item name. Let's get started!
Bento box plays a multi-faceted role
Bento box is of course lunch box, but it is just versatile as it can turn into various look. It can be a gift box, a serving bowl, a snack container, a treasure box even a flower vase.
Add movement to your space with lipped Katakuchi vessel
Katakuchi vessel is normally used for liquid to pour Sake, dressing and source, but not only that. The lipped part is the key. Try putting a single flower in it, your space would turn our stunning!
Enjoy combining elegance and a sense of fun
The tasteful plate like this can be a decorative item on its own, but by combining with your accessories or a small sake cup or tea cup for example to use as a saucer adds a sense of fun.
Confine seasonal presentation to a small space
You may present your seasonal decoration on a small space with occasional items or plants and flowers. It's going to be a warm atmospheric place for sure. Enjoy creating a sense of the season on this small space.
An ideal companion for your quality time at home
Cup is of course for any drinks like coffee, tea, Sake and soup, also can be a dessert, ice cream or yoghurt cup for your quality time at home. What about trying out some floral arrangement with it?
Be accented with a catchy piece on your table
Small but something that has an impressive sense of presence like this item "marron dome box" lends a warm unique feel. If you use this as a spice container served on the table, it absolutely stands out among other tablewares and catches the guest's eyes. Also can be used as an incense container. A perfect gift idea.
You may discover it adopts several different aspects depending on how to use it. You probably have more opportunities to host a lunch, dinner for the coming festive season, so try out fresh and different styles with the new items that you haven't tried before. Be creative and enjoy your coordinates out of the box with Urushi lacquer wares.
I'd love to hear your inspiration and idea from you to share with us.
