John Lewis Tako Karakusa Bowl, Blue

Beautiful porcelain bowl from the Tako Karakusa range. Its wonderful design features blue designs of tako-karakusa (octopus vine). The karakusa design is one of many patterns used to decorate Arita and Imari wares. Arita is a town on the island of Kyushu, which has been a centre of Japanese porcelain production since the 17th century. ‘Kara’ was the word for China in ancient Japan and in the arts, kara was a source of great inspiration.

Various artwork techniques were introduced from the Asian mainland into Japan, which were then adapted to Japanese taste. Although karakusa refers to a Chinese grass motif, many of these patterns which display a repetitive motif of stylized flowers and leaves, had originated beyond China, in India, Persia and Arabia.
