*Coming May 5th is Children's Day "子供の日"or Boy's Day celebration *
Boy's Day Festival exhibition held by local Handicraft Association
I've explained about this day here; On this day, we celebrate Tango no Sekku (端午の節句) and wish that our sons will grow up healthy and strong. 'タンポポの会 tampopo no kai' which is the same association held Girl's day exhibition (I posted here) had Children’s Day exhibition in collaboration with the Ceramics Federation.
|Happy to see dolls for this day made of "Cocoon Filament" like the girl's day ♪|
The bottles (earthen ware) below used as vases are sulfuric acid bottle container. Next city where is my husband's birth city used to have thriving ceramic engineering (pottery industry). "sulfuric acid, is for refining gold and silver" for coins.
Here is my post about it.
*Works by Indigo Dying*
I'm surprised that the Matsutake-mushrooms look so real and even they put fragrance on the Hard Tip of them (hope the right word). We call the part 'ishizuki 石づき'
I really LOVED this work which expresses the old scenery with the lovely old couple.
|I really felt heartwarming to see this sweet old couple; we'll be soon p:-)|
