Kutani Ginsai

Yuri-ginsai (underglaze silver) is a technique to decorate with silver leaf, and then clear glaze is applied over it.
In contrast to glittering gold, which has a strong presence under the spotlight, gleaming silver exhibits graceful beauty.
The silver allows itself to blend well with other colored glaze, creating elegant beauty. Silver usually turns black due to oxidation, which can be prevented with glazing, retaining the elegance of silver leaf for a long time.
