HASAMI PORCELAIN was designed by Takuhiro Shinomoto of Tortoise in Venice and is made in Hasami village. His vision was to integrate modern tableware design with the organic quality produced by traditional Japanese manufacturing techniques.
The charm of HASAMI PORCELAIN lies in the soft and comfortable texture that is carefully shaped with modern lines and aesthetics. There is a distinct natural feel to their wares compared to that of traditional porcelain. The matte finish of the porcelain adds the organic touch that serves as a complement to food and beverages.
The curved lines represent the essence of modern Japanese aesthetics that is defined by a combination of modern and traditional styles. Its primary appeal is not only in its form, but also its functional nesting design for ease of serving foods and its storage efficiency for limited spaces.
HASAMI PORCELAIN sets itself apart from the mass-produced, factory-made porcelain tableware found in other porcelain-producing regions around the world. Porcelain made in the Hasami village is original in the organic nature of its production and the unique character of each finished product.
