Repeating midori (green) kiku (chrysanthemum) bring a cheerful feeling to this Kutani-Ware Koro (incense burner). It's no wonder that Confucius suggested the kiku be used as an object of meditation. As the flower of September, kiku is the focus of the Festival of Happiness (Kiku no Sekku). This charming Kutani-Ware koro is sure to add a sense of joy and happiness to any space.
For over 350 years, skilled Japanese artisans following in the tradition of Saijiro Goto, the first to fire pottery in the Kutani village of Kaga, have used five traditional colors in striking designs to produce world class works of fine porcelain. Today Kutani-Ware is world renown for the great skill of the talented artisans whose masterful hand glazing ensures that every piece of Kutani-Ware is an exquisite piece of functional art worthy of being treasured for generations.
