Imari (Arita) porcelain is the name for Japanese porcelain wares made in the town of Arita. The craftsmanship, production, drawing techniques, and unique designs with 400 years of history, continues to make Arita porcelain number one in Japan.
The charm of Hagi Ware lies in the rough texture of the clay and the pockmarked surfaces laced with cracks in the glaze. Hagi Ware is liquid-permeable. This results in another interesting characteristic, that is, that its color and tone change with use, especially if used to drink tea.
