Kutani pottery is one of the representative traditional crafts of Ishikawa. It is a porcelain product that features glazes using 5 traditional Kutani colors (red, blue, yellow, purple and green).
The history of Kutani pottery dates back to around 1655 in the early Edo period. It was first made by the order of Toshiharu Maeda, the first feudal lord of the Daishoji Clan, the branch of the ruling Kaga Clan in the area. Its bold design, brushwork and fine painting still attract many people today. However, the Kutani kiln was closed down abruptly in around 1710. The reason is unknown even today. 100 years later the kiln was opened again and run by the Kaga Clan, inviting many craftsmen and designers from Kyoto and Edo (former Tokyo) and producing various styles of Kutani pottery. Free-spirited nature of Kutani has been handed down over generations up until to the present time.
