1616 Arita

Dating back to 1616, Arita-yaki is a type of Japanese pottery that finds its roots in the ancient ceramic town of Arita, located on Kyushu Island in southern Japan. 

Crafted by local artisans using clay made from crushed stone, designer and creative director Teruhiro Yanagihara was inspired by the vast experience and skills of these people and founded his pottery company, 1616 Arita in 2012.

Named after its origins, 1616 Arita stands for contemporary products that can be used everyday, though made with the extraordinary workmanship, thinness and strength of original Arita ware.
