Porcelain production began in Japan in the early seventeenth century, several hundred years after it had first been made in China during the Tang dynasty — This refined white ceramic requires more advanced technology than other ceramic types. The vessels are fired at very high temperatures so that they are strong and vitrified, as opposed to low-fired earthenware, which is porous and easily breakable.

Imari, Chinese “Chinese Imari” is a decoration style with predominantly a dry iron red enamel highlighted with gilt applied on underglaze blue and white porcelain. Its immediate source of inspiration is the Japanese aka-e red painting but could be traced back to the Chinese “Wanli wucai ” immediately before that. When during the 2nd half of the 17th century due to the downfall of the Ming dynasty the Dutch East India Company VOC could no longer export much porcelain from China, they turned to Japan as an alternative porcelain manufacturer which started the porcelain trade with Japan.
Of the shipments of Japanese porcelain which were made to the Netherlands some were aka-e or “red painted” which borne the name “Imari” porcelain in part referring to any porcelain shipped out from the Imari port but mostly in the minds of people referring to this red painted decoration. This Imari style was very successful in Europe.
