In return for the precious Japanese ceramics that 16th century Dutch traders returned laden with to The Netherlands, they presented the Shogun of the day with a ceremonial gift of Dutch linen cloth. From this origin, Dutch designer, Christien Meindertsma has come up with ‘Porcelain & Linen,’ a new range of Arita-ware celebrating this historical relationship. Using linen cloth, Meindertsma created models of cups, plates and bowls which were then reconstructed in ceramic form. This collection also makes use of a common glaze type, as well as a newly-developed glaze made from recycling the broken ceramic shards discarded by the 10 potteries contributing to the 2016/ project.
