松竹梅図 Shouchikubai: A very popular nature motif combination of pine, bamboo and plum. Since all of three plants can survive through the harsh winter, they are called "Three Friends of Winter", symbolizing perseverance and resilience. They are often used for ceremonies as a good blessing.

祥瑞手 Shonzuite: A type of high-quality blue and white porcelain inspired by the imperial ceramics of China’s Ming dynasty (1368-1644). At the end of the 1600s in Japan, such wares were imported from China for use in the tea ceremony by Japanese nobility and religious leaders.
