Choho Kiln Pink Mori Kutani Lucky Cat 3.7in

JPY ¥23,800

This adorable pink lucky cat is painted in the "mori-e" technique, similar to the slip trailing technique, which is a characteristic of Choho Kiln. A thick paint is squeezed out of an "icchin," a dispenser with a fine tip, and the patterns are carefully painted onto the surface. Mori-e adds a decorative pattern and tactile texture to a smooth porcelain surface.

In the old days, Japanese farmers living with cats were said to prosper without crop damage because cats would drive away rats that damage their crops. Today, lucky cats have become popular as a charm of good financial fortune. And a lucky cat with its left hand raised is said to "invite people."

The color pink is believed to enhance certain aspects of life, including affection and positive connections. In Feng Shui, the color pink is associated with sentiments of love and tenderness.

Filled with Japanese tradition and good fortune, this lucky cat is excellent for your house decor and brings good luck to you and your loved ones. 

Choho Kiln was established at the end of the Taisho era (1912-1926), and has continued to operate as a wholesaler and manufacturer of Kutani Ware.

The kiln is characterized by bold painting and delicate "mori-e," three dimensional decorations, which are created by freely using green, yellow, purple, navy blue, and red color paints, a style called Kutani "gosai (five colors)."

In recent years, their main products have been interior decorations and ornaments. The third generation Choho continues to preserve traditional techniques and patterns while adopting the modern sense of new designs.
