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.
These mugs are very cute and we love the design. It would be nicer if they were larger because here in the USA we typically have larger cups of coffee or tea than in Japan. They are a bit small.
Thank you very much for your kind words and valuable feedback. We will use this as a reference for future product development. Please have a wonderful teatime with this mug :)
