On some occasions, you may prepare drinks like coffee or milk in a pitcher in the kitchen and bring it to the table. It would add a beautiful scene if daily meals are served with a pitcher of drink rather than a plastic bottle or a carton off the supermarket shelves. Such ad-wrapped designs might be good for displaying in the stores, but not for the table. And, for some people, those plastic bottles or cartons are too high and/or too big for use on the table in a sitting position. The height/size of the JICON pitcher is just right for use on the table and for holding. The shape is designed so that one can easily access the inside when doing dishes.

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. The kiln makes porcelains for daily life with its traditional white porcelain techniques using Amakusa Touseki (porcelain stone).
