Fun Link Friday: Kutaniyaki

Kutaniyaki is one of the many traditional crafts (伝統工芸) of my “home prefecture” of Ishikawa. The style is characterized by the use of five colors of glaze (red, blue, yellow, purple, and green) and was supported by the Maeda daimyô in the Kaga-han (southern Ishikawa). In this video, watch a craftsperson from Kutani Choemon in Nomi-shi, Ishikawa, expertly paint a design on a bowl.
