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 Gold is perfect for those who have a goal in their heart, and are trying their best to achieve it! Feel inspired by the cat Kabamaru, who has extended his front paws into the air, grasping. With the caption “Run straight towards your dreams” (yume ni masshigura), this bowl reminds you to always strive for your dreams, and never give up!
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 gold, complimenting the gentle mustard yellow outside.
