What is "Ko kutani"
Ko Kutani is Old Kutani, which refers to the Japanese porcelain that is the most beautifully crafted ceramic in the world. The intricate details of Japanese traditions painted in vibrant colors are nothing less than awe-inspiring. Still getting the world attention it deserves, Kutani ware goes back about 300 years. Sources confirm that Kutani was first introduced in 1655. Lord Maeda Toshiharu ordered Goto Saijiro to take a trip to Arita Village located in the Hizen Province. This village in Saga Prefecture was the hub of Kutani porcelain and Goto Saijiro was assigned to learn the art. Kutani at the time was new and learning the glazing technique of porcelain was considered art.
