Aritayaki, a kind of Japanese pottery, finds its roots in the ancient ceramics town of Arita located on Kyushu Island in southern Japan. It was in this town, in the year 1616, that the Koreans first introduced the art of pottery to Japan. Up to today Arita still produces ceramics made by local craftsmen using the distinctive ingredient of clay made from crushed stone. Inspired by the profound experience and skills of local Arita craftsmen, designer and creative director Teruhiro Yanagihara developed a complete new ceramics brand for Momota–Touen Corporation.
Named after its origins, 1616 / arita japan products are produced in the same factories as the original Arita pottery but take a complete different design approach. 1616 / arita japan stands for contemporary products that can be used everyday, though made with the extraordinary workmanship, thinness and strength of original Arita ware.
Following the tradition of Arita pottery, Teruhiro Yanagihara developed a new series of ceramics using the traditional technique of clay made of crushed stone, though in a different composition. The result is a high-density kind of clay that makes the pottery items extremely strong and heat and stain-resistant, even without glaze. A special agent added to the clay provides the Standard series with a characteristic light grey, mat tone.
The series clearly show Yanagihara’s interest in borderless design. Items don’t have predetermined functions but allow different combinations and usages and good stackability among the Standard products.
Name of Anise is comes from octagon and in Christ, the number 8 is well known for symbol of resurrection.
