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.
This vase is reminiscent of antique sake bottles, but a fraction of their price - IF you can find one. It is highly decorative, but being basically one colour, plus a little black and gold, it is not gaudy. The background colour is a restful sage green, and the principal image in black and gold depicts a path or river running diagonally across it. The vase’s shape is asymmetrical, and is cleverly balanced by the varied width of the image.
