This is a technique in which 100% pure silver leaf is applied to each piece of pottery by hand and placed in the kiln. After the pottery 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.
Beautifully crafted, lovingly packaged
The amount of hand-work on this vase was impressive - from the vase itself down to the wrapping/presentation. Flawless buying experience from a Facebook ad, so I wasn't sure what to expect. My wife is a ceramics artist, and was blown away by the finish quality.
