Fukurasuzume Round Bowl
Affectionately known as the "plump sparrow bowl," the namesake and inspiration behind this elegant porcelain vessel comes from the Japanese word "Fukura-suzume" meaning a "plump sparrow in the winter."
An auspicious motif in ancient and modern Japanese culture, Marumitsu Poterie's feathery muse can be seen in the delicate, hand-carved feather details that grace the interior and exterior of the dish and in the bowl's wonderfully rounded shape.
A nod to the bowls muse, a sparrow in mid flight is stamped on the bottom of each dish.
Glazed in a soft matte white, the depth of the Fukura-suzum bowl makes it a versatile piece for serving side dishes, dips and spreads, and desserts.
