Ginsai means ‘silver color’ in Japan, and it refers to the delicate technique of putting silver leaf onto ceramics then glaze on top of it before firing. Ginsai become popular when potters experimented with putting a simple and beautiful design onto ceramics, and they found that this appealed to both Japanese and Western tastes. The craftsmen will spray the paint over the top of the silver leaf, allowing for a consistent and delicate color that could not be achieved by using a traditional brush. This particular design was created over ten years ago, it is still just as popular.

Kutani Ware

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.
