This white little porcelain vase is made by Jicon, Japan. With it's ribbed body, this piece is perfect for either a singular flower or a small bunch of posies. Jicon meaning "porcelain" in modern times though "seize the day" in Buddhist words, denotes "porcelain created by the house of Imamura" of the Touetsugama kiln, founded 350 years ago. The Touetsugama kiln makes porcelian pieces for everyday life, incorporating techniques of Amakusa Touseki (porcelain stone). The Touetsugama kiln originated in Mikawachi of Sasebo City in Nagasaki prefecture as a house kiln under the patronage of the Hirado clan. The kiln was redeployed to Arita in Saga prefecture by Imamura Shikao XII for its expansion and is currently succeeded by Imamura Kenichi XIV.
