Japanese Cherry Blossom and Sun platter
The significance of the cherry blossom tree in Japanese culture goes back hundreds of years. In their country, the cherry blossom represents the fragility and the beauty of life. It's a reminder that life is almost overwhelmingly beautiful but that it is also tragically short.
Measuring 20 cm by 30 cm and with a flat central base this fragile looking piece is remarkably robust. It's transparent pale blue base is set against the gold of the sun to create a very evocative and serene piece. Use it as a functional item, perhaps for pot pourri, or let it stand alone as a piece of art.
