Adding a new take on traditional celadon is the matte-textured Moist series featuring a sandblasted finish. Smooth to the touch, the soft green hints offer a cool and refreshing feel.

Nabeshima celadon uses a glaze made from a secret blend of high-quality celadon ore from Okawachiyama, which turns a rare green when fired. Variations in glaze thickness create a wide range of gradations and enhance the depth of each piece.

Imari Nabeshima Ware

Nabeshima ware is a porcelain ware produced by the Nabeshima domain kiln, which was established in 1628 by 31 selected potters in the Arita and Imari areas (Saga Prefecture) as a project directly managed by the Saga Nabeshima domain in the early Edo period.

For about 250 years until the abolition of the domain in 1871, the Nabeshima ware, which could only be used by shoguns and feudal lords, continued to produce porcelain masterpieces such as "Iro-Nabeshima (colored Nabeshima)", "Sometsuke" and celadon porcelain, and others as masterpieces of the finest quality. Later, the kilns became private kilns, and new potters joined to create the present Imari Nabeshima ware.
