The JICON (meaning porcelain 'JI' in modern times 'CON') brand was founded by the Touetsugama Kiln, itself established 350 years ago in Mikawashi of Sasebo City, Nagasaki in partnership with Japanese designer, OJI Masanori. The Kiln is currently succeeded by IMAMURA Kenichi XIV. JICON uses a unique blend of porcelain stones and glazes accompanied with an unconventional firing technique at much higher temperatures to obtain their one-of-a-kind off-white porcelain wares with a matte texture and are tougher, heavier, and harder.
These bellflower-shaped, white porcelain table wares were designed based on the old Arita (a town in Saga prefecture where kiln is now based) traditions but refined to fit the modern life style.
Traces of pigments on the porcelain surface are oxidized iron particles in the porcelain stones – natural colour tones that the makers at JICON embrace.
