Cherry Blossom – Where Does It Originate From?

Cherry Blossom Adrift
Pink petals passing, Scents above so high
Painted porcelain perfection, Blossoms caress the sky

Swaying silent shroud, Suitors strolling by
Pink petals passing, Lover’s gentle sigh

Pastel hues falling, Slow fluttering grace
Pink petals passing, Lining streams in lace

Pink petals passing, Smoothest transit by
Soft essence floating, In most subtle lullaby

Inducing springtime slumber, Upon a satin shore
Sailing with the current, Pink petals pass before

Cherry Blossom

 Cherry blossom is the name for the flower of cherry trees known otherwise as, Sakura and they are indigenous to several countries such as Japan, Korea and China. This flower has a very significant meaning to Japan. It symbolizes clouds due to their nature of blooming and they are also an enduring metaphor of life which is an aspect of the Japanese culture that is associated to the Buddha teachings. Most importantly, to the Japanese, cherry blossom is an omen of good fortune and is also an emblem of love, affection and represents spring.

I fell in love with these flowers the moment I saw them in Japan and I was determined to come up with an entire collection on its own. I can’t find any words to describe how much I love them and as I’m writing this, I’m imagining myself lying under these flowers enjoying the gorgeous view.

 One word to describe, “beautiful”!.

 Here are some of the lacquered products I have designed according to the theme and I am proud to say that this is one of the collection that is the best selling, yet!
