Ao-Chibu, which is also called Ao-Tsubu, literally translates as ‘blue dots’. This Arabesque design is very typical which blue dots are used. The artist will spend many hours individually painting each blue dot and gold dot on the background.
Kutani ware is a style of Japanese porcelain first established by Goto Saijiro after the mid-seventeenth century. Production of Kutani ware ceased at the end of the 17th century, but commenced again in the 19th century. The porcelain style is known for five colors: red, yellow, green, purple and navy, which are used to paint over dynamic line drawings.
