Blue and White Dots Kutani Ware Porcelain Wine Goblet Set of 2
Set of 2 Porcelain Wine Goblet
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. There are many other color combinations that are very popular, including Shiro-Chibu (white), Aka-Chibu (red), Ki-Chibu (yellow), and Kuro-Chibu (black).
The brass stem and porcelain cup are delicately balanced, and it gives it strength as well as beauty. It may just seem like a regular wine glass, however you can also enjoy other drinks as well like Sake.
Kutani ware relies on the precision of the potters that make the bases and paint them – although all potters have a key role to play in the production of these beautiful ceramics. With each change in generation, a new line of potters need to be trained in this ancient art, and although sometimes it can be arduous training, the results are astonishing. We wish to continue this craft and skill into the future.

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.
