Traditional Japanese wood block prints (woodcuts) from artist Hokusai are featured on these lovely teacups from Japan.
These are wonderful crisp reproductions of the finest wood block prints created by Japanese artists centuries ago. When the west first set eyes on this art, they were fascinated by the vivid colors. The spectacular waves depicted by Hokusai, fascinated French Impressionists like Monet who decorated many colorful prints in his home in Giverny France. The vibrant colors inspired him to expand his color pallet and to create his Impresionst masterpieces. Now you too can be inspired to create your own masterworks while you enjoy a nice cup of Sencha in these traditional Japanese tea cups.
