Plovers In The Waves
2022 Limited Edition - 10 Espresso Cups
The waves are a metaphor for the world and the meaning of the design is that of overcoming difficulties together, therefore it often stands for matrimonial happiness or families’ safety and wellbeing.
The name is a Japanese pun: the characters for “plovers in the waves”, 千鳥, have the same pronunciation as the characters 千取り, which literally translates to ”to take a thousand” and refers to “receiving 1000 good fortunes”. For this reason, it is associated with meanings such as luck at winning and goal achievement.
The pattern is therefore a symbol of good luck, carrying a wish for a tranquil life among the infinite waves of life.
