Designed by Pierre Charpin, the Tea Box is a ceramic container with lid designed to hold tea bags or leaves.
Pierre Charpin created new series following Arita’s tradition of decorated ceramics. Between nostalgia and newness he designed a collection with a special attention on the form-decoration connection.
The focus on designing the object’s shape and decoration together results in a simple detail along the edge of each piece from which the motif of gradual shading emanate. The motif create a zone of pure whiteness which offers itself as an immaculate recipient willing to welcome and enhance any dish.
Origin Made in Japan

Aritayaki, a kind of Japanese pottery, finds its roots in the ancient ceramics town of Arita located on Kyushu Island in southern Japan. It was in this town, in the year 1616, that the Koreans first introduced the art of pottery to Japan. Up to today Arita still produces ceramics made by local craftsmen using the distinctive ingredient of clay made from crushed stone. Inspired by the profound experience and skills of local Arita craftsmen, designer and creative director Teruhiro Yanagihara developed a complete new ceramics brand for Momota–Touen Corporation. Named after its origins, 1616 / arita japan products are produced in the same factories as the original Arita pottery but take a complete different design approach. 1616 / arita japan stands for contemporary products that can be used everyday, though made with the extraordinary workmanship, thinness and strength of original Arita ware.
