Seiju Kiln is a Kutani ware kiln newly founded in May of 2023. Its name was bestowed with hopes of bringing happiness and auspiciousness through its tableware items adorned with traditional Kutani ware designs.
A standout pattern from Seiju Kiln is "Hanazume," a signature floral design of Kutani ware. Craftspeople meticulously hand-draw the initial designs and then employ advanced transfer techniques to imprint a stunning floral pattern onto the surface of tableware items. After the base colors are set and fired, delicate gold outlines are applied. Pieces undergo a second firing at a reduced temperature to enhance the gold lines' radiant shimmer.
