hi there, anyone know what this says? I bought a new teapot and realized I couldn't find a creators name anywhere but I found this under the lid. Guessing it's the artist who made it. I tried to look it up but it looks more kanji than han to me. Help would be greatly appriciated. Thank you for your time.

It says "Arita-yaki"

Arita-yaki or Arita ware refers to porcelain made in the town of Arita (in northern Kyushu) and the surrounding areas. (i.e. it's the name of a region and the style that originates from that region, rather than the name of an individual artist).
