    About JICON series

    White porcelain ware 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. Certain items in the series have an accent of rusty brown colour on the rim called "Fuchi-Sabi".

     

    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).
