A Traditional Kutani Plate in Japan
How have you been? I’ve been doing well, and started preparing my third studying abroad in America this year. I will fly to America in three weeks, and stay there for two months! I really can’t wait!
Before going back to America, I want to update my art blog as many as I can.
Today’s blog entry is “Kutani”. I painted this plate for the international Mexico convention this year.
When I showed it to people in Mexico, most of them were so interested in our classical and traditional style, Kutani because it’s their first time to see the Kutani style in person. Many people in Mexico said the colors on the plate were very unique. Yes, they are!!! That’s because they are made from glass. Only Kutani uses the colors made from glass in Japan. I’m really glad that many people became interested in Kutani.
They said the green color on the plate was so lovely, and I totally agree with them. I’m very proud of our this art form, Kutani and the colors.
I’m so glad that I could introduce Kutani to people in Mexico, and they really loved my plate!
I donated this plate to the convention, and one of the Mexican ladies has kept it. I’m really happy that my plate is in Mexico!
