Message from Taiga Kiln
”Add color to your life, enrich your mind”
I hope you will enjoy the hand-painted taste, the texture of the raised glassy paint unique to Kutani stoneware, and the taste of being infused in the kiln.
Since they are hand-painted, we cannot make many of them. It may take me a while to make it. However, I will send you better vessels.
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.
