This adorable red lucky cat is painted in the "mori-e" technique, similar to the slip trailing technique, which is a characteristic of the Choho Kiln. A thick paint is squeezed out of a "icchin," a dispenser with a fine tip, and the patterns are carefully painted onto the surface. Mori-e adds a decorative pattern and tactile texture to a smooth porcelain surface.
When you actually hold it in your hand, you can see that the paint is heaped up, creating an uneven surface.
Generally, yellow lucky cats are said to bring good luck.
This Lucky Cat is part of a new series called "Oinori Neko" made of Kutani Ware. In Japanese, "Oinori" means "to pray" and "Neko" means "cats".
The pose with both hands in front of the face seems to be asking for something, which is a very lovely gesture.
Is it the owner's happiness that it is praying for?
In fact, cats sometimes make gestures like this pose. They often make appeals to their owners, such as asking for attention or play.
Filled with Japanese tradition and good fortune, this lucky cat is excellent for your house decor and brings good luck to you and your loved ones.
Choho Kiln was established at the end of the Taisho era (1912-1926), and has continued to operate as a wholesaler and manufacturer of Kutani Ware.
The kiln is characterized by bold painting and delicate "mori-e", three dimensional decorations, which are created by freely using green, yellow, purple, navy blue, and red color paints, a style called Kutani "gosai (five colors)".
In recent years, their main products have been interior decorations and ornaments. Choho III continues to preserve traditional techniques and patterns while adopting the modern sense of new designs.
