Tradition x Modern

The 400 years of traditional craftsmanship lives through the elegant porcelain of Arita
and introduces a modern and minimalist design for today’s lifestyle.
 
 
The brightness only top quality materials holds.

Since the late 17th century, royal families in Europe and Japan expressed porcelain as “White Gold”.
IDA blends the elegant and delicate porcelain of Arita with precious metals.
 
 
Contrast and harmony

All that exists in the world, nature and universe,
finds its origins in the harmonization of opposites like the yin and yang, positive and negative.

There are three stories at the heart of IDA.
 
It starts with my encounter with porcelain from Arita during my stay in Great Britain.
During then, I visited palaces and art galleries where I was impressed by the gorgeous brilliance of Arita ware.
It came from around the world, but In Europe porcelain was combined with the art of goldsmiths,
and I was charmed by the beauty and perfection of the combination.

 

Starting jewelry production using natural stones fifteen years ago follows.
The material Arita ware is made from is porcelain stone which is a very hard white stone.
I felt a very deep connection between porcelain and other natural materials I was already using,
and I started to dream about the day I would be able to produce jewelry using this marvelous stone.
 
Lastly I was surrounded by potters and enchanting Arita ware,
and I hoped to bring together porcelain with my love for jewelry.
 
Through its history of 400 years, Arita ware has changed into something new and free.
Through my concept of “a world based on contrast and harmony”,
I would like to touch people’s hearts with my jewelry,
and to fill them with encouragement and affection.
