Jicon Shinogi Daen (Oval) Flower Vase
Contemporary porcelain for appreciating the present
An oval-shaped vase with a large opening, the Shinogi Daen flower vase is perfect for setting a small bouquet. Its shallow depth makes it versatile around the home, either on a window sill or in the kitchen where space might be limited.
Designer Oji Masanori created this series of flower vases based on the traditions of Arita porcelain, while reimagining them for a contemporary lifestyle.

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.
