A Hawthorn Bowl

The surface of this porcelain sculpture is decorated with individually hand-carved porcelain sprigs. Each sprig is formed separately in a mould designed and made by Hitomi Hosono, then carved and finished with fine brushes to ensure a highly detailed finish. Inspired by the Hawthorn tree, the delicate layering of the sprigs in this piece creates a sense of movement. The exterior of the piece, covered with these finely detailed porcelain leaves, contrasts perfectly with the gold-leaf interior.
