Kikkoman Soy Sauce

by Artist Orla Walsh


Original Painting

I’ve been looking forward to painting this bottle for a while. This the holy grail of packaging and design and just as iconic as the Heinz Ketchup Bottle. Also similarly to the ketchup bottle which is designed for you to tap where the glass 57 is embossed on the bottle to release the perfect dollop of ketchup, kikkoman is a soy sauce dispenser with two holes in the red top which is a clever design to control the pore. Sometimes referred to as the ‘Control Hole’
