ABOUT SEIKOU KILN
In early Taisho era, (about 100 years ago) Seikou Kiln opened its kiln in Nomi city of Ishikawa prefecture.
Seikou Kiln researched Japanese overglaze paint for Kutani for years. Finally, they achieved a high quality product with their printing paper. Transparency of glassy glaze and thick overglaze paint are as same quality as hand paint work.
“Expression which inherits Ko Kutani by using Japanese overglaze paint.”
“Consistent with improving quality of Kutani ware as a craft.”
“Offer unique elegance of Kutani ware in reasonable price which is acceptable for market.”
These 3 are principles of Seikou porcelain. With their as high quality as hand paint, Seikou tells attractiveness of Kutani ware to modern life. They won many awards such as at “Charming Japanese Souvenir Contest” by Japan Tourism Agency or at “Gourmet & Dining Style Show.
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.
