Akae Kutani Serving Bowl
A gorgeous Akae-style Japanese bowl with the intricate painting by hand. The detailed drawings in the Iidaya/Akae style of Kutani ware are truly remarkable. Not only does it have a beautifully detailed pattern on the inside, but also the wavy shape of the rim and the patterns on the outside make it a beautiful bowl from every angle.
The size is suitable for serving appetizers, salad, and side dishes such as Sunomono(vinegared food) and Nimono(simmered food) for 2 to 4 persons.
This elaborate Kutani bowl is a perfect pairing with modern and stylish bowls and chopsticks from Yamanaka lacquerware, which brings out the artistic and traditional taste of the item.

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.
