This is a technique in which 100% pure silver leaf is applied to each piece of stoneware by hand and placed in the kiln. After the stoneware is fired, the silver leaf is polished so that it becomes smooth, and then the beautiful and transparent Kutani Gosai glass glaze is applied. This technique requires a great deal of time and skill, including more than four times of kiln firings before it is completed. It combines the transparency and beauty of Kutani colors to enhance the dining experience.

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.
