HASAMI PORCELAIN is made in an area in Japan that has a history of porcelain manufacture dating back 400 years. This modern ware with its straight lines draws its inspiration from the essence of traditional Japanese aesthetics, utilising expertise in porcelain tableware and small scale mass production that has been developed over centuries.
The size of HASAMI PORCELAIN products are based on a fixed module. Mugs, bowls, trays all share the same diameter so they can be stacked freely, stored and transported easily. They are also multi-functional. For example, a tray can also be used as a lid. The inspiration behind the stacking mechanism, and the functionality of nesting, come from tiered boxes - traditional lacquer ware - used in Japanese cuisine.
The texture and colour of HASAMI PORCELAIN are natural and unique to the material - a mixture of porcelain and clay. The charm of HASAMI PORCELAIN lies in the texture- firmer and sharper than earthenware, yet comfortable to the touch of the hands and lips. There is a distinctly gentler and more organic feel to the ware than that of regular porcelain.
