The Jicon brand of porcelain is a collaboration between designer Oji Masanori and the 350-year old Imamura porcelain studio. Located in Saga prefecture and specializing in Arita-yaki porcelain, Jicon was established with the objective of reinterpreting many traditional styles of Japanese ceramics for the modern household.
Jicon (磁今) are a combination of the words now, or current (今) and the word for porcelain (磁). It was also intended to overlap with a homonym (爾今) which is a Buddhist term that means live in the present.
