Japanese Stoneware

Shortly after the first kaolinites were discovered on Japanese soil, around the village of Arita in 1616, Sakaida Kakiemon built his first porcelain oven there. After observing others practicing the secrets of glazing, Sakaida Kakiemon became the first Japanese to apply blue glaze on white porcelain. He is regarded as the founder of the porcelain industry in Arita. Due to the rising popularity of the tea ceremony in the 17th century, a golden age was experienced in Arita. www.aritaporcelain.com
