This is a technique in which 100% pure silver leaf is applied to each piece of stoneware by hand and placed in the kiln. After the stoneware is fired, the silver leaf is polished so that it becomes smooth, and then the beautiful and transparent Kutani Gosai glass glaze is applied. This technique requires a great deal of time and skill, including more than four times of kiln firings before it is completed. It combines the transparency and beauty of Kutani colors to enhance the dining experience.
