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 Sakura and Birds Kutani Bowl is one of my favorite designs of pieces that I have purchased from Musubi Kiln. The craftsmanship is excellent and the artistic rendition of the bird and Cherry blossoms is exquisite.
We are so grateful for your kind words. It means so much to us! It is created by craftsman one by one with love. We hope this bowl will make your mealtime pleasant :)
