Hasami Porcelain is a collection of pieces that strive to mix and match in function. Made to be stacked, their pieces are stored and carried easily. The materials are unique- made of a mixture of porcelain substance and clay, at a specific ratio that creates a texture that is firmer and sharper than earthenware, yet comfortable to the touch of the hands and lips. Each piece is kiln-fired without glaze, leaving the surface feeling similar to terracotta.
Use the bowls and plates as is, or pair them together to form a handsome covered bowl.
The larger pieces may also be used as serving trays+dishes or as fruit bowls.
Due to the high temperature manufacturing process, color and texture of may vary per piece.
Microwave & dishwasher-safe.
Designed by Los Angeles-based Taku Shinomoto and made in Japan.
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. Hasami Porcelain like tiered boxes, can be used in various scenes - indoors and outdoors, individually and as a set.
