ARiTa AiRline is a new and small-scale residency in the porcelain town of Arita in Saga Prefecture Japan. Although the town boasts a long history of porcelain making, it’s also a beautiful historic town with many traditional houses that are designated as historical preservation area and Japanese heritage. Surrounded by mountains and heaps of green, blessed with a river flowing through the middle of the town it’s also a great place to get away from your everyday life and let your imagination surprise you.
We want to invite artists and designers from all over the world to come and taste a bit of our way of life. This residency is not limited to just the craft of porcelain making or under- and overglaze painting, we also want to invite people from other artistic fields to take a look at this town and link what we have to offer to their own speciality.
