About us

Ceramic Japan was founded in 1973 in the historic ceramics (commonly called Seto-mono or Yaki-mono) region Seto City, Aichi Prefecture. From the beginning, under an uncompromising design policy, we have produced many products due to the collaboration between talented designers and the traditional craftsmanship of which Seto City is proud.
Those products, which are a combination of distinct technique and modern design, have both practicality and high artistic quality; they have received various design awards and are highly appraised at home and abroad, for example, MoMA’s selection of our products as part of their Permanent Collection.
We, Ceramic Japan, will continue creating our distinctive products here and will present them to the world.
