The distinctive Jicon porcelain collection derives its name from the Japanese words for "porcelain (JI) in modern times (CON)." Crafted by the Imamura family, Jicon is a family run porcelain company that derived from the renown Touetsugama kiln in the Saga prefecture of Japan, founded 350 years ago.

The collection blends Western and Eastern porcelain traditions: while the porcelain is traditionally made from the Touetsugama kiln, the smooth white texture recalls soft-paste English porcelain from the 18th and 19th centuries.  In collaboration with design Masanori Oji, Jicon makes porcelain products for daily life using traditional techniques and Amakusa Touseki clay.
