A stone monument bearing the inscription "Ko-Kutani kiln ruins" stands quietly in a clearing.
It marks the spot where the Daishouji Clan(a branch of the Kaga Clan)
established a kiln in about 1655,to make use of the local porcelain stone.
Tha porcelain ware that was created there was later called "Ko-kutani"
and became the foundation for Japanese colored porcelain ware.
Rich overglaze colors applied with fluid brushwork -green,yellow,red,purple and blue-
give Kutani porcelain its characteristic beauty.
However,only half a century later the kiln was abandoned for reasons that nobody knows.
About 100 years later,Kutani porcelain was revived under the patronage of the Kaga clan.
The Kasugayama and Wakasugi kilns were established, and kilns such as the Yoshidaya kiln
rode on the momentum of "revived Kutani",all producing overglaze porcelain ware.
Various styles competed and combined to develop into the overglaze techniques
that have been handed down to this day.
In modern times,the gorgeous Kinrande style(very high-quality design of gold)
has become well known in the West as "Japan Kutani"
Kutani porcelain, which combined the artistry of Ko-Kutani ware and the utilitarian
beauty that developed from "revived Kutani",continues to evolve.

The weather might have been great outside but we still had a great turn up for folks keen to create and socialise. One of our regulars had a variety of projects to work on: there was the beautiful quilted patchwork bag completed and in use to show everyone. the patchwork table runner showcasing braid quilting had met a design hiccough in the middle and required some patient unpicking. there was the Inspiration Folder to be put into some sense of order (all of those printouts from the internet really need to be categorised so they can be referred to and utilised at some future date and of course the rest of us had to have a look... the Knitted Knock--s needed to be finished off completely and those loose ends tucked away so that they are now ready for delivery. and there was that therapeutic pulling out that you did for one of the other regulars whose quilt needs a bit of modification. Quite an achievement for a Saturday afternoon spent socialising. Another of our creative members was working on a couple of projects too. There was the tea cosy that needed embellishment before it was ready to be put into service keeping the tea scalding hot on these cool winter days. Maintaining the 'keeping warm in winter theme', there was the cosy winter blanket that was being personalised and decorated with wool embroidered flowers stitched free hand and inspired by various illustrations from back issues of the Embroidery &... It's quite difficult to capture the fragile wispiness of flowers like the bottle-brush when embroidering in wool. It is a wonderful way of making a serviceable item into something creative and quite special. One of our members who is relatively new to sewing spent most of the afternoon agonising over the best way to cut out the lining of her winter skirt. Sometimes it is just so nervewracking making that first cut. trying to back out over the edge is so difficult but once you're over that, you're committed and have no choice but to keep moving. After you have started to cut, a sort of acceptance seeps in and you just continue, knowing that the commitment has been made and what ever situations arise as a result will just have to be dealt with. Converting a length of fabric to something wearable, while exciting, can be quite daunting as well. Another of our social sewers has taken on the task of creating teapot cosies for an assortment of teapots for a soon-to-be-opened restaurant. The measurements were taken but somehow the carefully-considered system of measurement was found to be open to a variety of interpretations when it came to the design phase. There was discussion as to whether a teapot cosy should cover the whole pot and be removed in its entirety for pouring or should the cosy leave the handle and spout out in the cold but stay put for pouring. That's is not even taking into consideration colour, fabric, construction and the collection of shapes and sizes that need to be accommodated. It'll be interesting to watch this project progress. Another of our regulars has been involved in the Knitted Knock--s Australia project but has had to interrupt this project after a SOS from her daughter who has added a rescue greyhound to her menagerie. This poor creature is not built for the chilly winter mornings and is in desperate need of a jumper. Apparently ordinary dog coats cannot accommodate the big chest, tiny waist and long body length of a greyhound. A search of the library catalogue brought up a couple of books on stylish dog coats but none for greyhounds. 'Ms Google the Knitter' brought up several options but on closer inspection these were somewhat lacking in the finer detail so now the beginnings of a greyhound poloneck off the internet is being attached to a cute pattern for a dachshund (from... Winter could be over by the time the project is completed but there is always next year. Looking forward to the variety of projects that present at next month's SSS. If you enjoy sewing or associated crafts, bring your project along including all the bits of gadgetry required to progress the project, to the Gordon White Library Community Meeting Room on Saturday 29 August at 1. 00pm.
