Hasami, Nagasaki is one of the foremost pottery districts in Japan. Porcelain was first made in the area almost 400 years ago, during the Edo Period, and was not only distributed all over Japan but also exported to Europe through the port of Nagasaki.
HASAMI PORCELAIN was born under the direction of Takuhiro Shinomoto, whose innovative concept integrates tradition and modernity in tableware. Clean lines, multi-functional material and texture. The rhythm and echo of the clean lines, created by stacking, enhance the harmony and beauty of the design.
There is a distinctly gentler and more organic feel to the ware than that of regular porcelain. The matte texture and color, is made of a mixture of porcelain substance and clay, at a specific ratio.
Made in Japan.
