Do you change your dishes/tableware along with the seasons?
In Hawaii, we don't really have seasons, so I've never grown up with doing this.
On the other hand, my MIL changes her dishes/tableware with the seasons.
"Cool" dishes used mostly in Summer are clear, white and/or blue (like ice).
"Warm" dishes used mostly during the Winter are brown, green and earthy looking.
Of course, there are decoration type dishes too, with sakura (cherry blossoms), momiji (fall foliage) or fruits to match the seasons.
There is a vendor that comes to our shopping arcade several times a year. He mainly sells Arita-yaki and Mino-yaki (Two types of popular Japanese ceramics. Most areas around Japan have their own type of ceramics).
From what I've seen, I think Arita-yaki uses brighter colors like yellow, some reds and Mino-yaki uses mainly blue and white.
While you would expect his prices to be expensive, he actually sells his wares very reasonably, most under 300 yen (about US$3). I kind of overheard him talking with another customer and I think he takes defects or discontinued items off of department stores' hands then sells them, which is why he can sell them so reasonably.
Did you know that the Japanese got their blue and white technique from Delft?
Anyway, most of my dishes are blue and white, since they are my favorite colors, so I don't have many "warm" dishes, but I've put away my clear glass dishes for now.
