I genuinely feel passionate about this range. For me, it was the closest thing to a "product-love at first sight".
The Arita porcelain range, "Lin" by Kinshodo, was created to celebrate 400 years of Arita porcelain.
The name "Lin" was born from its likeness to a metallic sound while paying homage to the master artist "Linzo Kaneko", an Arita porcelain artist in the Meiji and early Showa era who played a major role in building the foundation on which the Kinshodo brand stands today. His visionary design and prominent craftsmanship has been inspirational and remains at the core of many current-day works.
With its metallic texture and brilliant yet delicate colour tones, the "Lin" range is unique, stylish and modern. As you behold the simple design and unique beauty of the hand craftsmanship in each piece, beware, for the magical colours and beauty will draw you in. It is hard not to be inspired and to easily imagine what Linzo Kaneko was thinking all those years ago.
Each piece is crafted and painted by hand, creating individual character and a texture that you can see and feel. The collective beauty and synergy of your chosen set of Lin products can only be trumped when you use your favourite piece.
