“The motif of mg&gk is painted with the blue pigment called gosu, which is most often used in Arita-yaki. We take great care of each brush stroke using light shades that bring liveliness of the pattern, create soft impressions, and go well with any kind of food. This requires a complex shades adjustment technique that only veteran craftsmen can handle. They apply each brush stroke imagining our customers who use our products in their relaxing moments.”
