Imari Japanese Ceramics

The town of Arita, in the former Hizen Province of Japan, is where Imari pottery originated and is still made to the present day. Imari pottery is characteristically decorated with stylised bamboo , geometric and floral designs. The colours used are a combination of orange, green, red, and blue.

Here is a video displaying the breathtaking colours and designs:

Bowls, chargers, dishes and coffee pots are commonly found in the Imari style of pottery and current day prices can range from as little as £10.00. These kind of Imari items are very collectable on today's ceramic market.

From afar, Imari pottery can be confused for fine bone china due to the exquisite and delicate nature of pieces of art.
