Seikou Kiln opened its kiln in Nomi city of Ishikawa prefecture in early Taisho period (1912-1926). The company researched Japanese overglaze paint for Kutani Ware for years. Finally, they realized products with high quality by using printing paper. The transparency of the glassy glaze and thick overglaze paint retains the same quality as hand painted pieces.
