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.
It was a great birthday gift for my wife. The cup's surface is not smooth, I am not sure what the material is. We rather dont put it in a dishwasher.
We're pleased to hear that you liked what you got for your wife's birthday! The surface of this product isn't smooth because it is a piece that retains the texture of pottery. Yes, we would recommend hand wash even tho it is dishwasher safe as pottery is more prone to chipping than porcelain. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions! Thank you for shopping with us!
