Kihara is a Japanese porcelain company based in Arita. For over 400 years artisans have been using the perfectly white kaolin clay of Arita to create porcelain works of art. Kihara strives to honor that history by uniting traditional craft with modern design and innovation. Every plate is either hand painted or decorated using a pad printing technique. Though the motifs are contemporary, they are all inspired by ancient Japanese traditions and seek to celebrate the beauty of nature. The porcelain is thin yet durable, each piece a testament to the level of mastery these artisans have achieved.
