Stunning deep platter by Hikari Masuda, featuring a hand painted scene of the forest, based on the design of "Hanafuda" Japanese playing cards.

"Hanafuda" (Flower Card) cards are smaller than western cards and feature plants, animals, birds, or man-made objects on their face.

This unique piece has been rendered even more special, as it's been repaired at the base with "kintsugi". The gold colour of the kintsugi work perfectly compliments the colouring of the platter, and almost seems intentional.

length: 26.5cm
width: 18.5cm
depth: 4cm

Nb. this is a hand made piece and measurements are approximate.

Hand painted ceramic.
Repaired with kintsugi.

Please note, ceramic work featuring kintsugi, while food safe, should not be used for serving hot food.
