Thoughts in blue flower

The colorful image of blue “gosu” pigment appears like a splash of water droplets frozen in time, or a field of blue flowers in bloom, while the careful brushstrokes, lovingly applied one by one, give a sense of the true heart and soul of Japan handed down over the centuries. You can enjoy all the five blue flowers on the cups, which consist of Gosu’s signature blue shades 1.0 - 5.0.
