Egg Shell Rock “Sho” / YAMAHEI
The name “Egg Shell” is derived from the thin porcelain which resemble a real eggshell. It has a thickness of only 1mm and has a translucency quality that allows the colour of the drink to be seen faintly from the outside. During the Edo – Meiji period, this thin porcelain was produced and exported to the European market as they were very popular. Among the various Egg Shell series, Egg Shell “Sho” is a collboration with Japanese calligrapher, Ms.Suitou Nakatsuka. She wrote the Japanese character of “Flower” and expressed it in four different ways to reflect the four seasons with her sophisticated technique. “Sho” in black “ink” results in a calligraphy-like effect against the white porcelain background.
