A cup that is particular about the original texture of stone, soil, and materials.

The item has a plain shape that fits easily in the palm of your hand and a light touch that is particular about its thinness.

The natural shades common to the series add elegance and tenderness to table coordination.

Arita ware which pursues the beauty created from nature

Research by Kirstie van Noort_Photography Kirstie van Noort


Dutch designer Kirstie van Noort only started the design process following her own rigorous material research.

Visiting the local quarry, she came to learn that the porcelain stone used in Arita contains hardly any impurities, a phenomenon extremely rare in itself and those that do are typically discarded.

So, she chose to focus on the traditionally discarded impure porcelain stone and develop a clay with a beautifully nuanced hue, just as nature had intended.

Both series in her collection highlight this unique colouring and the nature of the material while retaining an elegant simplicity of composition.


A recent graduate of the Design Academy Eindhoven, Kirstie van Noort runs her own design studio in The Netherlands.

Van Noort is especially interested in ceramics and ceramic production, her work to date is a continuation of her well received graduation project Ceramic Paint/Collection Cornwall.
She sees design as a way to communicate a certain process or the story behind a material.

When she is intrigued by one of these she conducts a detailed study, this research informs the concept behind the final product or the research becomes the work itself.

Van Noort’s work has been featured in several international design publications including Metropolis and Elle Decoration magazines.
