Yoshidaya Style, which is one of the most famous traditional style of Kutani Ware, was first created by Yoshidaya Denemon in 1824. The four basic colors that are used within this plate are yellow, green, and aubergine. This style restored the painting style of Aote Ko-kutani. Yoshidaya painted the surface of the plate completely using only the 4 colors, yellow, green, dark blue and purple and never red.
In early Taisho era, (about 100 years ago) Seikou porcelain opened its kiln in Nomi city of Ishikawa prefecture.
Seikou porcelain researched Japanese overglaze paint for Kutani for years. Finally, they realized the product with high quality like hand paint by 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.
The beauty and presence of a large blooming peony on the table will add a touch of color to your everyday life.
