Kutani Ware (九谷燒) is one of the representative Japanese Iroe (multicolored over the glaze) porcelain produced in Kanazawa, Komatsu, Kaga, and Nomi city in the southern part of Ishikawa prefecture. It’s traced back to 1650’s in the Kutani village.

 There are 3 periods in the Kutani Ware’s history: Ko-Kutani, Saiko Kutani, and Kutani. The ceramics of the three eras are all renowned and highly valued.

 The ceramics produced in the first 50 years are called “Ko-Kutani,” literally meaning old Kutani. They consist of five colors, blue, green, yellow, purple, and red.
