A reproduction of an old Dutch book,
re-reproduction to Kutani painting plate

A Kutaniyaki Plate with blue painting. The motifs were extracted from a reproduction of an old Dutch book handed down by the Maeda Tosanokami family in Kanazawa. I imagined that the story would be spun by reproducting by a modern craftsmanship. It is the good size for a confectionery plate.
