1616 / ARITA JAPAN
Aritayaki, a kind of Japanese pottery, finds its roots in the ancient ceramics town of Arita. Arita produces ceramics made by local craftsmen using the distinctive ingredient of clay made from crushed stone. Arita japan products are produced in the same factories as the original Arita pottery but take a complete different design approach. 1616 / arita japan stands for contemporary products that can be used everyday, though made with the extraordinary workmanship, thinness and strength of original Arita ware. This collection emphasizes the dialogue between applied art and everyday use by means of colour and form.
