The phrase “it takes a village” is no mere saying when referring to Hasami Porcelain. The town of Hasami in the Nagasaki Prefecture of Japan has been home to master potters and artisans for over 400 years, since the early Edo period (1603 - 1868). The various arts that contribute to creating high quality porcelain goods have been passed down through generations, making Hasami a hub of creativity and refinement, with roots in family and tradition.
The concept for Hasami Porcelain was designed by Takuhiro Shinomoto while he was living in Venice, California. Takuhiro wanted to bring a new level of artistry to contemporary tableware and home decor by blending traditional Japanese porcelain crafting practices with versatile post-modern design. So, he took his vision to the source of quality Japanese pottery. Each piece of Hasami Porcelain is handmade in the town of Hasami, with various craftspeople contributing to the overall design process. Separate artisans are responsible for sourcing and mixing the clay, moulding the pieces, glazing them, baking them, and every step in between. When you purchase a Hasami product, you can be sure that it has received the utmost attention and care from a wide rage of master craftspeople working collectively to bring the best pieces to their customers.
The Hasami Porcelain brand uses a proprietary blend of stone and clay which provides the signature texture and colouring of their products. Because all of the materials are sourced on site using traditional methods, the colouring of each piece may vary depending on the time of year it was made, and the subsequent effects of temperature and weather conditions on the soil. This means you are ensured cohesive but individual pieces all with a unique personality and artistry.
Each Hasami porcelain product is made with versatility, durability, and beauty at the forefront of the design process. All pieces are crafted with clean, simple lines, and most products are stackable for easy storage and display purposes. The various colour palettes that they offer are easy to mix and match if you would like to vary the textures in your collection, but also look wonderful within one cohesive collection. We offer many different items from Hasami, many of which - like our teapot - can be purchased with other items to curate sets in whatever tones you prefer.
By incorporating these timeless pieces into your home, you will be bringing a sense of refinery and simplicity to your everyday life.
