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 Bowl 300mL Red is perfect for those who love nothing more than lazing around in front of the TV! Feel inspired by the lazy cat Kabamaru who has flopped down for a rest, a fishbone at his feet. With the caption “It’s better to do what you can now” (ima dekiru koto o yareba ii), this bowl reminds you to not push yourself too hard, and to take some space to breathe (and maybe have a snack)!
With a capacity of 300mL, this bowl is ideal for some miso soup, or rice (perhaps topped with a pickled plum)? The inside of the bowl is a deep lacquer-like red, complimenting the gentle mustard yellow outside.
