If you use '-' in front of a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry -Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
If you use 'AND' between two words, then both of those words will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry AND Potter will return results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'OR' between two words, then bth of those words may or may not be present in the search results.
ex: Harry OR Potter will return results with just 'Harry', results with just 'Potter' and results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'NOT' before a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.

Using '*' in a word will perform a wildcard search. The '*' signifies any number of characters. Searches can not start with a wildcard.
ex: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.
To find the divine, first consider the small. Case in point are the exquisite visual epiphanies found in Michiko Kamee’s art depicted on miniature objects.
Our Kikka cover reproduces her “full of chrysanthemum” design originally handpainted with gold overglaze and colour on china by employing Kyo-Satsuma, one of the great traditional arts of Kyoto.
Michiko Kamee was born in 1978 in Japan and attended the Traditional Art School of Kyoto. After graduating she travelled throughout Europe and Asia, establishing her artistic career in miniatures. She condenses beauty in her small artworks until it finds its purest distillation. In this design the viewer can see hints of the kaleidoscope of flowers in bloom, as well as fine boned artistry in every brush stroke and hue.
Michiko Kamee’s detailed rendering of one of nature’s most celebrated flowers shows off the techniques of Kyo-Satsuma, which emphasises precision in line and colour choice, accentuated with breathtakingly beautiful gilding.
