About Kutani Ware

Kutani ware is a type of pottery made in the southern part of Ishikawa Prefecture, known for its picturesque and bold overglaze decorations, often depicting landscapes and birds and flowers.
These beautiful decorations have made Kutani ware widely beloved, not only as dishes and tea bowls but also as decorative items. The coloring techniques of Kutani ware have evolved over time, resulting in unique styles specific to Kutani ware, such as "Ao(Blue)-Kutani," which does not use red, and "Aka(Red)-Kutani," known for its red painting and gold coloring.
