At a time when urban vinyl is such a hot commodity, it's fun to see a set of toys that takes a gentle jab. The funniest part about it is that, hip as urban toy collectors might be, they're still incredible nerds.

From the beginning of the 17th century, Arita (Imari) porcelain was valued above gold and silver by members of the Hapsburg family, the Bourbon family, the Hanover family and other famous families who were fascinated by this beautiful porcelain. August the First, the king of Saxony in Germany, was a fanatical collector. In Arita’s porcelain, therefore, we find various nuances of the culture and tradition of both Asia and Europe. Inspired to explore this historic East-West artistic interface in Arita porcelain, American contemporary artist and tattoo legend Don Ed Hardy traveled to Arita to work with the traditional ceramics craftsmen in a unique collaboration. The result is a collection of porcelain that vaults the historical forms of the Arita craftsmen into the 21st century, with post-modern interpretations of century-old forms that have been re-invigorated via Hardy’s neo-Californian sensibility and signature personal style.
Beautiful collectible art for a beautiful home.
