Shunko Box

Only 1 left


The beautiful Pink Prunus Covered Box is a rectangular shape with soft edges, based on a smooth pebble and embellished with clusters of hand-applied white bas relief Prunus leaves which overlap one another to form an elegant trail over the box. The Prunus, or cherry tree leaf, is evocative of Japanese gardens and their distinctive pink cherry blossom. Hitomi’s title for the piece, ‘Shunko,’ means Spring sunlight or scenery of Spring. She sees the pointed white leaves as though they are shards of sunlight glancing across this pebble inspired piece. The level of detail in each leaf cluster is exquisite, as though they have just been trimmed from the tree and this realism is one of Hitomi’s key skills as a ceramic artist.

The skilled artisans at Barlaston use ancient skills and their years of training to meticulously create the items in this collection. Each individual Shunko piece is cast to create the shape ready for ornamenting. Three different sizes of chrysanthemum are crafted, with colored clay added to each ornament by the skilled figure makers, creating a burst of color at the center of each flower that is unique every time. Fourteen individual ornament applications are intricately applied by the skilled ornamentors. Offered as a limited edition of only 5 pieces, each Shunko box takes just under 4 hours to produce and is truly inspirational piece of art. Every piece is hand-crafted at Barlaston as a highly limited-edition collectible item and artifact with an impress bearing Hitomi’s Japanese signature, the Wedgwood stamp and limited-edition number.
