Title: Imari Ware Sakazuki (Sakazuki-03)
Imari Yaki (伊万里焼, Imari ware) is a type of Japanese porcelain produced in Hizen (肥前, Saga prefecture, and Nagasaki prefecture today), it flourished mainly in Arita (有田) town in Saga prefecture. The main port of shipment was Imari, so that this style of porcelain was named Imari Yaki. Until the medieval, Japanese people made pottery, but they depended on foreign countries for porcelains. The first production of domestic porcelain began in Arita town in the 17th century. It is the origin of porcelain in Japan.
Its quality of material characterizes imari ware. Porcelain is even stronger than pottery. Since it is fired at a high temperature (around 1300 degrees) for over 17 hours, it becomes hard and durable. You could hear a clear and high-pitched sound if you flipped this porcelain lightly with your finger. Also, it has a smooth texture compared to other potteries.
This Sakazuki (盃, cup) is decorated with figures and plant designs. Red, blue, and green colors beautifully depict each motif. You would enjoy using it in a practical way to drink. Or, you would also appreciate it as interior decoration. This cup would be a nice collection.
