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.
Small but fun
I own this plate in the purple. The shade of this purple is noticeably different (lighter and softer) than the purple in the other Atelier collection, I wonder why this is so. Regardless, it is an absolutely beautiful light plum purple shade, perfect for the autumn season!!!
Thank you for leaving such wonderful feedback. Due to the handmade nature of this product, each color and shape may vary slightly. We hope you enjoy the warmth, and look forward to seeing you again soon.
