Yoshidaya Style, which is one of the most famous traditional style of Kutani Ware, was first created by Yoshidaya Denemon in 1824. The four basic colors that are used within this plate are yellow, green, and aubergine. This style restored the painting style of Aote Ko-kutani. Yoshidaya painted the surface of the plate completely using only the 4 colors, yellow, green, dark blue and purple and never red.
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.
