One of the most well-known and the oldest porcelain in Japan is Aritayaki. The porcelain is made in Arita city in the Saga prefecture. The porcelain celebrated its 400 year anniversary in 2016. Instead of soil, porcelain, which is made by baking soils with low-heat, petrous porcelain such Aritayaki is made by baking stones with high-heat. The technique of petrous porcelain was expanded and became popular with European royals by the end of the 17th century. August ll Mocny was one of the most well-known collectors of Aritayaki porcelains. He ordered to innovate porcelain in Germany and this was the beginning of a porcelain brand, Meissen. Aritayaki porcelain was the inspiration to develop the world famous porcelain brand.
