Arita ware, also known as Arita-yaki, has its origins in 1616, when a Korean farmer, Yi Sam-pyeong, discovered white clay kaolin in Arita and used it to create Japan’s first porcelain. Arita was the first place to produce ceramics in Japan. After the discovery, a number of kilns opened in the area and it soon became a source for Japanese export porcelain destined for Europe. The Dutch East India Company began exporting the porcelain in 1653. The export pieces were often made in Western shapes and forms and incorporating Chinese decoration. One example is Chinese Kraak decoration–the name derives from the Portuguese ships, Carracks, that transported the porcelain. The decoration is distinguished by its cobalt blue underglaze and foliated radial panels. Traditional motifs, such as stylised flowers, decorate these panels, with abstracted designs in between each one.
