President Matsumoto of Arita Seiyo Co., Ltd. wants to inform people throughout the world of the excellence of Arita porcelain, while my desire is to spark a resurgence of the Arita porcelain on which Japan prides itself in Europe. His conviction and my desire inevitably came together, and so over the six months we tried our best on the main stage of Paris, which is the global leader in luxury trends. We began by exhibiting at MAISON & OBJET in September.
In this issue, I’d like to tell you about my passion for Arita porcelain (Aritayaki) with my resolutions for this year 2015! Aritayaki, a local industry representative of Saga Prefecture, will celebrate the 400th anniversary of its foundation in 2016.
