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.
