Kutani

Kutani style porcelain (or Kutani ware) was first established in the region of Kanazawa in Japan, back in the early 1650's. The clay used to make the porcelain was discovered near to the small town of Kutani and a small kiln was created to fire pieces.

The Kutani style produces pieces of pottery and porcelain that are finely made and are covered in images containing bold and rich colors. The images and patterns on the items show Japanese lifestyle, landscapes, plants and animals. In contrast to other Japanese pottery, a wide variety of colors were used, made from local pigments sourced from plants and minerals from the local areas.

The production halted around the early 18th century, when it is rumoured that supplies of the colors and the clay needed to make this kind of porcelain began to run out and become more scarce. The kilns were closed and no more Kutani ware was made in this area for over 100 years. In the 1820's, the kilns were opened again and the potters began to create pieces that would be exported all over the world from the nearby port of Arita.
