Octagonal Petal Porcelain Plate

Octagonal Petal Porcelain Plate

from 14.00

Arita Porcelain is produced in the small village of Arita in Saga prefecture. The region is known as the birthplace of porcelainware in Japan, and the contemporary range of tableware is fired in a local kiln founded 350 years ago. Arita Porcelain is distinguished by its translucent, natural off-white ceramic body crafted from Amakusa touseki, a porcelain stone which is mined off the local islands in the West Coast of Kyushu. Merging traditional craft with contemporary design, the range of tableware is versatile as items for everyday use or as ornamental pieces to adorn the modern table.

The Octagonal Petal Porcelain Plate takes its design from Japanese iconography. It is told through ancient times that the more sides to a polygon, the greater luck it possesses. In Buddhist belief, the number “8” represents everlasting luck. Fusing this ancient motif with that of the flower, they form a contemporary design that is perfectly suited to complement the dining table. The series is available in two sizes and it can be used individually or as a set.
