ARITA-YAKI (Imari) Effusion Lamp - Kinranmaizakura - Ginzakura
Arita-Yaki, also known as Imari is Japanese porcelain wares made in Arita, Saga prefecture. The history starts in early 17th century. Through the century, the fine porcelain ware became popular among European and Middle Eastern nobles. It is said that the value of Arita-yaki was the same as gold at that time. Arita-yaki is thin and light but harder than pottery, and very strong. Although many people see it as decorative art, it is perfectly alright to be used.
The characteristics of Arita-yaki are the smooth texture and the white base color which is creamy and clear at the same time. Because a lot of work and time went into each Arita-yaki, they are very beautiful and extremely valuable.
