JICON introduces white porcelain sake vessels and a bold pitcher designed by OJI Masanori.
The footed sake vessels are designed to be enjoyable for all times and places. Also they are designed so that one can appreciate drinking sake even more.
Nowadays many people in the world enjoy drinking Japanese sake. Just as there are wine glasses to enjoy good wine, these are sake vessels to enjoy savoring good sake. Since JICON aims to blend Japanese and Western styles, these Japanese vessels were inspired by European goblets, Umaue cup of Jingde Town as well as tall Persian goblets.
There is a real charm in the act of serving each other when drinking sake. The pitcher is designed to allow to serve and be served easily as you don't have to change its position because it has two spouts located at opposite sides. Also its rhomboid shape allows it to easily be gripped by hand.
We hope you enjoy a good sake wherever you are with these sake vessels and pitcher.
JICON is a porcelain brand launched together with a Japanese designer, OJI Masanori. The brand name means "porcelain (JI) in modern times (CON)." In the Buddhist words, JICON means "seize the day." It also denotes "porcelain (JI) created by the house of IMAMURA" of the Touetsugama kiln, founded 350 years ago. (Note that "IMA" means "modern times" in Japanese and can be paraphrased as "CON.") The founder of the JICON brand, IMAMURA Hajime, later in 2014 became independent as IMAMURA Porcealin. IMAMURA Porcelain makes porcelains for daily life with their traditional white porcelain techniques using Amakusa Touseki (porcelain stone).
