Story

This handsome book celebrates the 400th anniversary of traditional Japanese ceramic culture, which began in Arita, in 1616. To mark the occasion, sixteen leading contemporary designers partnered with ten traditional pottery studios in a unique collaboration that charts the latest evolution of porcelain ceramics. Together, designers and artisans worked to create sixteen original and innovative collections, rooted in the daily life of the 21st-century. Contained within Arita are more than 500 illustrations, which provide a fascinating introduction to the craft and region — paired alongside the contemporary collections, they reveal the unique creative potential of linking ancient and modern masters.
