Designed and produced by Japan’s Medicom Toy, [email protected] are some of the most collectible and sought-after toys around. And while the bulk of the toys are constructed using plastic or vinyl, this cherry blossom porcelain model is a sight to behold.
This 400% Kutani Sakura [email protected] is made with Kutani-yaki — a style of Japanese porcelain indigenous to the region of the same name in the former Kara Province of Japan. The entire molding process is performed by expert craftsmen without the help of any machinery, making these entirely hand-made creations all the more special.
The cracks on the surface of the toy were created using a special glazed coating over the ceramic, making each of the limited edition pieces unique, with its very own cracks, distortion, and texture.
Like many of the rarer [email protected], the toy comes with a collectible price tag to match its elevated aesthetic. That said, if you can’t resist adding this fine work of Japanese craftsmanship to your collection, click through to check out the piece in closer detail below.
