Video: Check out this flawless hand-painting process at Kutani Choemon

Hypnotic creation


There’s nothing more beautiful than handmade crafts. This video from Kutani Choemon proves that.

For over 130 years, Kutani Choemon has been producing tableware and tea ceremony utensils the traditional way. Using a fine art and craft form that is famous in Ishikawa, Japan, the company creates all its finished products from raw materials, where each item is intricately handmade and hand-painted by expert craftsmen.

Perhaps it's the pretty doodle-like design, or perhaps it's the meticulous method of hand-painting that is just so hypnotic to observe, I would even say it's like watching art porn. But enough talking for now - this amazing video says a thousand words on its own:
