Arita porcelain is the name for Japanese porcelain wares made in the town of Arita. Arita Porcelain roots date back to 1616 when Sanpei Lee discovered porcelain stones in the Arita region and began production of the first Arita porcelain pieces. They were exported to Europe extensively between the second half of the 17th century and the first half of the 18th century. The craftsmanship, production, drawing techniques, and unique designs with 400 years of history, continues to make Arita porcelain number one in Japan.
