About Arita porcelain
The town of Arita, Saga prefecture in Japan, is the cradle of Japanese porcelain. At the beginning of the XVIIth century, a Korean artisan named Ri Sampei settled in the area. Thanks to his mastery of high temperatures ovens and to the proximity of kaolin deposits, Ri Sampei was able to make porcelain with a quality similar to the one of the Chinese, putting an end to a seven centuries monopoly. Arita porcelain was very popular in the XVIIIth century when it got widely exported to Europe, contributing to the prosperity of Saga region.
