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.
I have just received my sake set, and I’m so happy with it! It’s stunning; so delicate and accurate- a pleasure to use. I must say it looks small, but holds the same amount of sake as our previous generic one (also a small). The packaging was also nice, making the whole experience as if you’re unboxing a gift.
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us this amazing review! It means so much to us. We wish this item will make your days little more special!
