2016/ Arita — Shigeki Fujishiro Porcelain
Using specialist skills found in the pottery town of Arita, Japan, the project titled 2016/ combines local artistry with international design talent to create everyday porcelain products. The project aimed to revive interest in and bring commerce back to this remarkable craft region.
In this specific collaboration, they worked with designer Shigeki Fujishiro, who together with Kin’emon Toen pottery emphasised the functionality of the objects and created shapes that would be suitable to either eastern or western tables.
Due to the limited edition nature of this collaboration, the pieces you see available here are the last remaining and will not be restocked.

In 1616, the art of Japanese porcelain manufacturing came to life in the town of Arita located in the Saga Prefecture. The town’s identity has become synonymous with the traditional craft of Arita ceramics since the discovery of kaolin (the mineral required to make porcelain) found in the mountainside. Arita ceramics are recognized by the thinness and strength of japanese porcelain and distinguished by the unique properties of clay that are used. This book was released to honour the 400th anniversary of traditional Japanese ceramic culture as interpreted by today’s leading designers. Arita / Table of Contents captures the unique collaborations and collections between 16 contemporary designers and 10 traditional potteries.
