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.
Sakura Kutani Yunomi Japanese Tea Cup
As I slowly build myself a beautiful tea set to drink my tea, it has encouraged me to slow down and enjoy my tea. I appreciate the beauty of the tea cup and I feel the love and tradesmanship that is used to develop any of Musubi Kiln products. I have even started drinking different types of tea. My cup was received beautifully wrapped, so good in fact that I take a picture of the wrapped cup before I untie. I am never disappointed with any item I buy from Musubi Kiln.
I bought the pink version of this cup. Its of a larger capacity cup but not too big. Love artistry of the painting. Its colorful yet very quiet. Pleasure to use with tea or hot/cold brew coffee. Would buy more if available in a future with different pattern or hue.
