"Mubyo" Yunomi cup, 2016
4"h x 3.5"w x 3.5"d
"Mubyo" is a Japanese word for "perfect health" or "six gourds". These two concepts share the same pronunciation, so six gourds symbol has been used to wish for the good health. I originally created this Yunomi cup for my parents, for the gourds to protect their health. Combined with the magical super food power of green tea that Yunomi cups are designed to serve, this cup should extend the users' health for a long time. All hand-painted and hand-carved.
