KIHARA, INC. is a Japanese porcelain producing company based in Arita; an area synonymous with ceramics for over 400 years. Arita porcelain products are noticeably different from other producing regions, especially in the tone of white and beautiful artwork. Historically, through the VOC (Dutch East India Company), much of the porcelain from Arita was imported to Europe. Today, the traditional craft is combined with modern techniques, like 3D shape designing and machining to produce new designs as the company looks at ways to introduce Arita porcelain to the world over the next 400 years.
