The pattern is called “Akaesaibyo”. It means fine red paint in English. The technique was developed around 1820 in Sano, Kutani. Akaesaibyo is one of the most popular patterns in Kutani. There were over 200 technicians in Kutani around 1900, but now there are only a few technicians. Buzan Fukushima is the best technician and leader in Akaesaibyo. Please take a look at his work.
