History[ edit ] “Imari” was simply the trans-shipment port for Arita wares. It was the kilns at Arita which formed the heart of the Japanese porcelain industry. Arita’s kilns were set up in the 17th century, after kaolin was discovered in A popular legend attributes the discovery to an immigrant Korean potter, Yi Sam-pyeong — , although most historians consider this doubtful. After the discovery, some kilns began to produce revised Korean-style blue and white porcelains, known as “Shoki-Imari”.
In the mid th century there were also many Chinese refugees in northern Kyushu due to the turmoil in China, and it is said that one of them brought the overglaze enamel coloring technique to Arita.

Technical developments[ edit ] In the context of Chinese ceramics, the term porcelain lacks a universally accepted definition see above. This in turn has led to confusion about when the first Chinese porcelain was made. Kiln technology has always been a key factor in the development of Chinese pottery. These were updraft kilns, often built below ground. Two main types of kiln were developed by about AD and remained in use until modern times.
These are the dragon kiln of hilly southern China, usually fuelled by wood, long and thin and running up a slope, and the horseshoe-shaped mantou kiln of the north Chinese plains, smaller and more compact. In the late Ming, the egg-shaped kiln or zhenyao was developed at Jingdezhen , but mainly used there. This was something of a compromise between the other types, and offered locations in the firing chamber with a range of firing conditions. Early wares[ edit ] Painted jar of the Majiayao culture , Late Neolithic period — BC Pottery dating from 20, years ago was found at the Xianrendong Cave site, in Jiangxi province,   making it among the earliest pottery yet found and so for the moment putting the Chinese ahead in a race with the Japanese in which national prestige is a factor.

Sign In Imari Porcelain When most people think of ceramics production in eastern Asia they think of Chinese ceramics — such as vases, tea sets, and figurines. However, Japan also has a rich history of ceramic arts, dating back several thousand years. Although the Japanese have been producing ceramics for a long period of time, the art did not become well known in the rest of the world until the seventeenth century when Imari porcelain became highly popular in European markets.
Imari porcelain became well known for its striking blue colors on a white background, and for a time Dutch traders brought large amounts of Imari porcelain back to European markets. Pieces of Imari porcelain came in many different grades of quality depending on the market they were bound for — but regardless of their quality, older examples of Imari porcelain are highly prized by collectors.
Ironically, Imari porcelain is generally believed to have been first produced by Korean potter Ri Sanpei, who was brought to Japan from Korea following the Japanese invasion of Koran in Examples of Imari porcelain from the early s used only blue colors on a white glaze background; as the art matured through the mid s other colors became a part of Imari porcelain, including red, yellow, green, and gold.
The popularity of Imari porcelain was somewhat enhanced by political turmoil in China, which closed Chinese markets and forced European traders to seek new production sources. Imari porcelain also remained consistently popular on the Japanese market, with different grades of pieces being available for almost every different social class. Imari porcelain was mostly produced on the southern Japanese island of Kyushu. While porcelain production was well established in countries like China and Korea, Japanese potters had a hard time finding the clay necessary for making porcelain.
Once a source of this clay was found near Arita Japanese porcelain production progressed rapidly, although it never achieved the scale found in China. Imari porcelain and indeed most porcelain has a white base color, to which early potters added a blue cobalt dye before firing to create an under glaze.
