Linen Textured Porcelain Vase - Linen
$ 36.00 USD
These remarkably thin vases and vessels are a modern representation of traditional “Arita Ware”. To achieve their unique texture, skilled artisans imprint fabric (in this case linen) onto the exterior. This process gives each vessel a familiar feeling and softened aesthetic. Despite being thin enough to be transparent and being less than half the weight of similar pieces, these vessels are strong and can be handled with confidence.
About Arita Ware
The town of Arita in Saga prefecture has a long history of porcelain manufacturing that is thought to date back to the early 16th century. It is said that the first white, hard-paste ceramics in Japan were made here. The spiritual tradition and pride of producing Arita ware has kept it alive throughout the generations, and authentic pieces are still in high-demand to this day.
