The tradition of Imari porcelain





"Arita ware (porcelain)" was shipped to the foreign countries in the 17th century by the Imari port.
Therefore it came to be called
Japanese ceramics "Imari porcelain".

Here is a porcelain paint specialty store.
The manufacturing method is transmission from father to son.








"第十三代 今泉今衛門 Imaemon Imaizumi XIII (1926 - 2001)" was one of the best ceramists in Japan.
He was registered as "Living National Treasures of Japan" by nation.

In front of that paint specialty store, there is their studio.
Now, Imaemon Imaizumi XIV succeeds to traditional technique.

You may have watched their works in the art museum.
They are ultimately delicate and graceful.


Please look at their gallery, it is gorgeous.
The gallery of "
Imaemon Imaizumi XIII".  
The gallery of "
Imaemon Imaizumi XIV".
The
art museum of Imaemon Imaizumi

Here is
Arita, Saga Prefecture.







In a lucky thing, I have a plate of Imaemon Imaizumi.
There is the small universe in it.
The precious porcelain are displayed in the
Tokonoma.


"Imari porcelain" or "Arita ware"
They are still carefully handed down as the Japanese best of them.

  1. Précieux graphisme et couleurs traditionnelles sont confiées à un support dont le moindre choc sonnerait le glas. Paradoxe d'un art qui se veut être transmis de génération en génération et se met en danger dès sa fabrication.
