Message from Okamemasa Kasui
Kutani ware, with its grayish-white ground, black line drawings and five-color painting of red, green, purple, yellow, and dark blue, is a very fascinating ceramics to me.
Attracted by the beauty of the colored paintings, I have learned the technique of overglaze painting and continue to go through trial and error.
I would like to continue to make the most of the profoundness of Japanese stoneware and porcelain, cherish the tradition, and study hard to create Kutani ware with a new sense.
I put my heart and soul into each painting so that you can enjoy a moment of relaxation when the simplicity of the flowers and plants decorate the bowl.
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.
