ARITA VASES
IV, V, VI, VII

Named after the town of Arita, Japan’s epicenter of porcelain ware manufacturing, the Arita Vases were inspired by the Imari ware of Western Japan between the second half of the seventeenth century and the first half of the eighteenth century. Made only for export to the West, it was often imitated by Chinese and European potters. Expounding upon this tradition of imitation in the twenty-first century, Eden based the floral pattern of these vases on a popular Imari design.

These objects recall the import porcelain purchased by the Cheeks as well as other import objects within Cheekwood’s collection.
