Born in 1942 in Osaka, the famous Japanese artist Hajime Okamoto traveled to China’s Jilin Province on a youth cultural exchange, and created modern Chinese-influenced art with a unique Japanese taste. He focuses on calligraphy and painting.
In 1998, he created the famous ‘Kabamaru’ series, a group of hand drawn cats caught in a variety of amusing and mischievous poses, with equally interesting and fitting captions. Each cat has its own personality! The leader Kabamaru likes to chill and amble around slowly. Momoji is silly, and loves to play. Urume is a charming and relaxed rogue. Sakon loves to play with fast moving objects!
The Okamoto Hajime Donburi 980mL Red is perfect for those who want to achieve something, but find it hard to get off the ever so comfortable couch! Feel inspired by the lazy cat Kabamaru who is reclining on his back while stretching his paw out, trying to catch a fish just out of reach. With the caption “Enjoy the present moment” (ima o yorokobi, ima wo tanoshimu), this bowl reminds you to stay in the moment, and have fun!
With a capacity of 980mL, this bowl is ideal for a hearty bowl of ramen soup, or a rice bowl (topped with fish perhaps)? The inside of the bowl is a deep lacquer-like red, complimenting the gentle mustard yellow outside.
