The pattern of Arare shines with the help of aged silver colour as if small flake ice falls from the sky onto a huge rock in a valley. The picture is so breath-taking that one can hardly move his eyes away from this masterpiece. The knob on the kettle lid stands a shy lily with a bud waiting to blossom in spring; the kettle handle forms a figure-eight knot which, in Japanese culture, is said to have human spirit in and is where the design concept comes from. The design conveys the sincerity to the receiver and collector.
Arare is made of a piece of pure silver by tools passed down from Meiji Era without welding. The kettle is in a square shape like iron kettle, and its lid is also hammered to be of a sophisticated and unique Arare pattern. The hammering tools were refined by the craftsmen in Meiji Era in order to make particular patterns on silver kettles and teapots.
Using top-level, pure quality precious metals as materials and infusing traditional Japanese culture and jewellery and metal arts, every singular silver kettles and teapots are homemade in Japan. Kyoto ZUIHODO adopts the Japanese Samurai spirit which believes that no matter how hard the creative process is, or how long it might take, we can always overcome ourselves, hammering delicately to finish the most perfect works of art in our hearts and present them to collectors.
