Kutani Porcelain

九谷焼 (Kutaniyaki)

Kutani ware is a style of Japanese porcelain first established by Goto Saijiro, a member of the Maeda clan, who set up a kiln in the village of Kutani (now part of the city of Kaga) on the order of Maeda Toshiharu, ruler of the Kaga domain. The porcelain style is known for multiple colors--such as greens, blues, yellows, purples, and reds--and bold designs covering most of the surface of each piece. See "Kutani ware". Wikipedia. Retrieved 2014-05-01. Kutani ware comes from the region between Kanazawa and Kaga-Onsen, in Ishikawa Prefecture. Today, there are 474 firms in the Kutani region, ranging from manufactories to small, traditional artist's workshops, which together employ more than 2000 works. Terai, where 80 percent of Kutani-yaki is made, is the center. Even today, the greater part of Kutani porcelain is painted by hand with great artistry, and it is characteristic for the reverse of the object to also be carefully executed, often continuing the design from the front. See Anneliese Crueger, Wulf Crueger, and Saeko Ito. "Modern Japanese Ceramics". Lark Books, New York (2007). p 192.
