Porcelain Sake Jug

Porcelain Sake Jug


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 Diamond Sake Pitcher features a mouth on both sides to allow ease of pouring. This unique design takes into consideration the old Japanese tradition of sharing sake. The phrase ‘sashitsu sasaretsu’ describes the back and forth exchange of pouring sake, a code of etiquette that is upheld in Japanese drinking culture which shows respect for others.
