CHRYSANTHEMUM PLATE // YELLOW
Design JICON by Oji Masanori
JICON is a porcelain brand launched originally by Touetsugama kiln together with a Japanese designer, OJI Masanori. JICON Porcelain makes porcelains for daily life with their traditional white porcelain techniques using Amakusa Touseki (porcelain stone). The brand name means "porcelain (JI) in modern times (CON)." In the Buddhist words, JICON means "seize the day." It also denotes "porcelain (JI) created by the house of IMAMURA" of the Touetsugama kiln, founded 350 years ago. (Note that "IMA" means "modern times" in Japanese and can be paraphrased as "CON.")
Chrysanthemum-shaped, white porcelain plates designed by OJI Masanori. The shapes and patterns are based on the old ARITA traditions but refined by the designer to fit the modern life style.
