Yoshidaya style, one of the most celebrated traditional styles of Kutani ware, was pioneered by Yoshidaya Denemon in 1824. This style distinguishes itself by using an exclusive palette of four colors—yellow, green, navy blue, and purple—while deliberately avoiding red. The designs are intricate, featuring a main motif set against a background pattern and expressed through layers of overglaze to create a sense of depth and complexity.

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.
