Kouraku Kiln is a long-established Arita-yaki pottery kiln founded in 1865. As one of the collaborations between KINCHO and Nakagawa Masashichi Shoten, the company has now released ‘Container with lid” a complete reproduction of KINCHO’s whirlpool can design in Aritayaki porcelain.
The can is inspired by the image of ‘aristocratic play’, and features the luxurious use of advanced transfer techniques based on hand-painting by traditional craftsman Yuko Yamaguchi, as well as a mosquito painting by our desiginer Jeremie on the bottom. It is an excellent product that gives a sense of affluent living.Display and enjoy together with the included porcelain mosquito coils.
The collaboration between KINCHO and Nakagawa Masashichi Shoten is now in its fifth year and is called ‘Japanese Summer Living Tools’.
This popular series utilises the skills of Japanese craftsmen. We are very pleased to add our pottery to this series, and to see the addition of our pottery to the series and look forward to it as an example of connecting the traditions of Aritayaki.
