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.
Brought as Christmas gift for my sister in Hong Kong. It arrived in Hong Kong in three days after I ordered on line in California. It was carefully wrapped with beautiful wrapping and she absolutely loved it.
Thanks so much for your positive feedback and good vibes. We’re glad that those pieces arrived safely and she loves them! They are produced by craftsman one by one with love. We wish they make her days little more special :)
