Details & Dimensions
Following the tradition of Arita pottery, Teruhiro Yanagihara developed a new series of ceramics using the traditional technique of clay made of crushed stone, though in a different composition. The result is a high-density kind of clay that makes the pottery items extremely strong and heat and stain-resistant, even without glaze.
Teruhiro Yanagihara, the creative director of 1616 / Arita Japan, designed the Standard series and at the same time invited Dutch designers Scholten & Baijings to develop their own line named Colour Porcelain. Both contributions throw new light on Japanese tradition, mixing Asian craftsmanship with European culture. While Teruhiro Yanagihara experiments with the clay and the usage of the pottery, Scholten & Baijings emphasize the dialogue between applied art and everyday use by means of color and form.
