Kutaniyaki was named after the village Kutani where it began in the middle of the 17th century. This is now in Ishikawa Prefecture. We love the bright colors and the many beautiful styles of Kutaniyaki. Some of our favorites are -
Kokutani. This style uses red, yellow, green and blue colors with lovely pictures of birds and flowers, landscapes, motifs and geometric patterns.
Mokubei. Cute Chinese figures in green yellow and blue are painted on a red base.
Yoshidaya. Very colorful in bright green, yellow, blue and purple. No red. Patterns include plants , flowers and birds.
Iidaya. Detailed figures like dragons and lion dogs drawn in fine red lines with gold ornaments.
Mori. An ornate textured pattern used with gold on figurines like manekineko (the beckoning cat).
Sometsuke. A ceramic painted in only cobalt blue and white.
