JICON Carved Flower Coaster
White porcelain tableware designed by OJI Masanori in the famous white porcelain Amakusa Touseki and made by the ancient Touetsugama kiln. Enjoy its beautiful "porcelain white" unlike anything seen before.
Beautifully-carved, white-porcelain coasters designed by OJI Masanori.
They come in 3 different flower designs.
The coasters are beautiful yet very functional as its design prevents the coasters to stick to the glasses in the presence of moisture. The drops of water that run down to the coaster slide into the carved patterns, creating a space that allows the coaster not to stick to the glasses.
They go beautifully with JICON's mug/facet cups as well as any glasses used at home, but they can also be used as small plates for spices or to put jewelry or small accessories.
dimensions: dia96mm x h10.5mm
packaging: Cardboard and paper
JICON wares all come presented in their own box. Making them the perfect gift.
JICON means "porcelain (JI) in modern times (CON)." In the Buddhist words, JICON means "seize the day." It also denotes "porcelain (JI) created by the house of IMAMURA" of the Touetsugama kiln, founded 350 years ago. The kiln makes porcelains for daily life with its traditional white porcelain techniques using 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.
