Hanazume Kutani Bowl
This elegant bowl features delicate Hanazume style, meaning filled with flowers, one of the most notable design of Kutani ware which has been handed down the Taisho period (1912–26).
Filled with colorful flowers all over the body with gold trimming, it has a timeless elegance and sophistication created by hand drawn technique; there are no two alike.
It is not a perfect circle; the asymmetry of its natural shape is intentional and an exquisite expression of art in its raw form.
The 7.4” diameter is perfect for tea time to serve with confectioneries or fruits and the splendid traditional flower design makes it an extraordinary gift for loved ones.

About kutani ware
Kutani ware is a type of pottery produced in the Kaga region of Ishikawa Prefecture and it has a history of over 350 years.
It is characterized by the heavy brilliance of the five colors of green, yellow, red, purple, and navy blue that are applied to the bold and daring lines.
Its long history has evolved through the tireless efforts and enthusiasm of people who have sought innovation while maintaining tradition.
In the early 1700s, the Kutani kilns were closed, but about 80 years later they were opened and Kutani ware was revived.
The beauty of the various styles and methods of painting is known as "Japan Kutani" and is highly regarded around the world.
This bowl is far more beautiful in person than pictures can do justice. Pure craftsmanship and artistry were combined to make the perfect bowl. I have already made another purchase based off the quality of this item alone. Excellent job Musubi Kiln!
