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 Brown is perfect for those who feel their energy levels rising! Feel inspired by the cat Kabamaru, who has either creeping forward stealthily, or performing a vigorous exercise regime! With the caption “Energy Rising” (genki ga hajimaru), this bowl will energize you for the day to come!
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 black, complimenting the gentle mustard yellow outside.
