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.
Flaws on finishes
Not very impressed by the quality of the finishes. The photos looks far better than actual. Gold finishes are unevenly applied at the sides and is not really at the high level of Japanese craftsmanship. Suggest for everyone to reconsider if buying for a gift, unless you're not so bothered by quality. It would still be best to buy quality that can be inspected beforehand.
This product is handmade by artisans, and the same goes for the gold application. Therefore, unlike machines, there are unevennesses that can only be created by hand, which can be enjoyed as wabi-sabi. But if you don't like what you see, please let us know. We accept exchanges and returns.
My boyfriend loves his new Macha bowl, it came beautifully wrapped and in perfect condition. The potter design on it is stunning!
