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 980mL Gold is perfect for those who want to be cheered up! Feel inspired by the cat Kabamaru, who seems to be engaging in a complex yoga pose (or is he just stretching?). With the caption “Feel uplifted while laughing” (waratteru uchi ni genki ga detekuru), this bowl reminds you that laughter is the best medicine!
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 gold, complimenting the gentle mustard yellow outside.
