Origin & History of Japanese porcelain:
When the Korean potter, Ri Sanpei, came to northern Kyusyu he found deposits of kaolin in a place called Izumiyama in the town of Arita. He began working there in 1616. This was the beginning of the porcelain production in Japan.
Somewhat later more people in the Hizen area also started making porcelain and Arita replaced Karatsu as a center of pottery manufacturing.
Around the Kan-ei period in the 17th century, Sakaida Kakiemon of Arita developed a new glaze technique using different colors which is known as Akae.
The porcelain of this area proved to be popular and was traded by the ‘Dutch East India Company’ and shipped to Europe. It included the Akae of Arita which was vigorously exported to many foreign countries.
On a domestic level, Arita pottery was also in demand throughout Japan and shipped from the port of Imari (Saga-prefecture) and came to be known as Imari ware.
The Nabeshima clan established their own private kiln using also advanced techniques. Arita porcelain, Kakiemon, Imari ware and Nabeshima represent the original production in the history of Japanese porcelain.
