Ko-Kutani is one of the most traditional style of Kutani Ware. It’s characteristics are a mighty and lovely design and flowing hairline with five colors of paint (green, yellow, red, purple, dark blue). The style attracts by its dynamic subtle charm. This style prospered under the guidance of Morikage Kusumi, expert of the Kanoschool of Japanese painting.
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.
