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.

Father’s Day is fast approaching and I thought it was only appropriate that I make sure the Dads were included. Father’s Day means so many things to so many different people especially in the world we live in today where family dynamics are not always Mum, Dad and 3 kids. To me Father’s Day like Mother’s Day is about celebrating those in your life that make it better just by being in it. It’s about celebrating someone who touches your life and that you can rely on through the good and the bad. So, although my questions are Father’s Day related please feel free to enter them all and celebrate someone who enriches your world on Father’s Day. Mrs Tink x. I love nothing more than a good teacup and teapot. When I was contacted by Zero Japan about reviewing their Teapot Gift pack for Father’s Day I couldn’t say no. My only issue was that Mr Tink does not share my love of tea or teacups and technically it was a Father’s Day Promotion so I was... But the things we do for love, and I’m glad I did because I may have found my new thing. No flowers, or pastel colours and really great to hold as they have no handles which meant my pinkie could stay down. The quality of the set is great and very well made. All in all a great experience and very different from what I was expecting. I’m now enjoying the occasional late night tea. Would like to WIN a Zero Japan Teaset for your Dad or maybe for yourself.

Tea is comprised of a range of antioxidants, catechins and polyphenols that positively impact the body from lowering cholesterol to aiding weight control and boosting metabolism. All-time favourite green tea is packed with antioxidants that boost the immune system, making it great for fighting off colds and various infections. Chamomile tea is perfect to have at night with calming properties for a good sleep – and it also aids digestion. Other blends that are great for soothing the mind and gut include mint and peppermint tea, which can help reduce gas, bloating and feels of nausea. Many people are unaware that different teas require different temperature and steeping time to extract the full aroma and flavour. Pouring freshly boiled water onto delicate tea such as green, oolong and white varieties will scald the leaves, and water too cold or tea steeped for too long can result in an unpleasant or tasteless cup. Take advantage of these health benefits by simply sipping on a loose tea blend prepared in the Japanese inspired Zero Japan Teapots. The teapots blend the art of ancient tea drinking with beautiful, modern designs. Each teapot is made from porcelain with a stainless steel infuser suspended from the lid rim, and are available in a design and size to suit any preference. The range is includes a classic shape – the Universal teapot – in a range of sizes and colours including the new Artisan Crackle series. For a more authentic Japanese tea drinking experience the traditional range includes the Persimmon, the Kyusu and the Zen teapots. com/ZEROJAPAN_INC. Source: Mrs Tink
For regular green tea leaves, the Japanese often use a kyusu, a one-handled teapot with a built-in strainer. The tea importer Sebastian Beckwith said tea steeping varies according to water temperature, the amount of leaves and infusion time. Western
I mentioned the story of a student in a cooking class who saw a "kyusu" (traditional Japanese teapot) and asked the instructor its purpose. Many readers responded, saying they were shocked. The situation is disturbing. But on the brighter side
