Imari (Arita) ware is the oldest porcelain in Japan. Also, the ceramic has the oldest history of the Sometsuke technique in the country. Sometsuke is the way to paint on a white porcelain with zaffer pigment.

 

It was invented in China and introduced to Japan by the Korean potter who created Imari-yaki in the 17th century.

 

Above all, the contrast of the indigo blue and white is the best appeal of the Sometsuke porcelain. And the indigo has subtle variations of the depth.

 

The craftsman Fujii Kinsai draws the patterns delicate yet bold for the Sometsuke porcelains. Furthermore, the shapes of the vases are really various. I would like you to choose his blue and white Imari vases while having the fun of the harmony between the patterns and the shapes.
