Arita Ware, made in the town of Arita in Saga Prefecture, is the oldest porcelain production area in Japanese history. The style of the translucent white porcelain with colorful paintings has influenced the porcelain industry in Europe. In Japan, Arita Ware is also a prestigious brand that is admired by ceramicists from other regions as a representative porcelain production area.

Touzan Kiln expresses the changes in light and color of iron glaze by using iron-containing raw materials produced in Fukui Prefecture and creating their own unique glazes. By using this original glaze and the rich soil nurtured by the Echizen climate, they create pieces that are soft and warm.

About ARITA ware

Arita Ware, made in the town of Arita in Saga Prefecture, is the oldest porcelain production area in Japan's history. Arita porcelain is characterized by its translucent white porcelain surface, dyeing using "Gosu" (indigo pigment), and gorgeous red painting using glassy overglaze pigments (red, green, yellow, purple, and blue). The pottery is highly durable and is produced in a wide variety of styles, from fine art to daily necessities. It was exported to Europe, where it was prized as fine art and called "white gold". Arita Ware is also a prestigious brand that is admired by ceramicists from other regions as a representative porcelain production area.
