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.
This mug features Arita porcelain’s signature durable, yet thin and light-weight design. The slight swelling of the bottom makes for a well-balanced mug when placed on a flat surface, while the delicate curvature of the handle allows the finger to grip, making it difficult to slip when washing.
