This Kutani-Ware Koro (incense burner) is a small but mighty in its beauty. Covered in a shimmering silver-leaf like metallic pink, the main body of this punchipinku (petite pink) koro fades from pure white porcelain to a deeper almost lavender at it's base. Truly elegant and modern. Try as we might, the photos just don't do it justice.
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.
