Red Fuji and Crane Kutani Ware Flower Vase with Stand
Red Fuji (Aka-Fuji) in the center and a flock of cranes gracefully flying around it create an elegant vase.
Red Fuji refers to the phenomenon of Mt. Fuji turning red in the morning sun, mainly from late summer to early autumn. Because of its fleeting beauty, many painters and photographers have made it the subject of their work. Since Red Fuji is rarely seen, it is said that those who view it will be spared from disasters and have their wishes for prosperity come true.
The depth of the painting is unique to Kutani ware. It is as if you are looking at a landscape.
It makes a wonderful interior decoration not only for arranging flowers, but also for displaying on a shelf. When displayed with the attached stand, it becomes a more chic and dignified decoration.
Kutani Ware is recognized around the world as "Japan Kutani" and has been renowned for its quality. The charm of Kutani ware lies in its unique layered colors (red, green, yellow, purple, and navy blue), which give the porcelain a sense of dignity. The traditional craft of Kanazawa, Ishikawa Prefecture, which boasts a history and tradition of about 360 years, adds vivid color to everyday life.
