Arita ware

In the early 17th century, Korean potter Yi San-pyeong discovered pottery stone in Izumiyama, Arita Town, and it was the first fired porcelain in Japan, making it one of Japan's most representative traditional crafts. Its transparent whiteness and gorgeous painting make it beautiful, giving it a thin, light, and delicate impression, but it is also hard, strong, and durable. Many of the pots are made of durable porcelain that can be used in the microwave and dishwasher, making them perfect for everyday use.

What you need to know before purchasing

The appearance of vessels is created by spots, blurs, unevenness of glaze, shading, and deflection of shape, which cannot be found in mass-produced vessels. The charm of handmade vessels lies in the fact that no two vessels are exactly alike, with pinholes, penetrations, distortions, and the like, and that the colors, size, and shape of each piece vary slightly from one to another. The coloring, size, and shape of each piece is slightly different, and the charm of handmade vessels lies in the fact that they are not exactly the same. Individual differences
The finish is relatively uniform, but because it is handmade, there are individual differences in shape, size, color, and so on. Uneven color/uneven firing
Because the glaze is applied by hand, the glaze may not be applied evenly. The firing process is also uneven because the temperature varies depending on the firing location in the kiln. Other Notes
