Simple geometry and the concept of modularity is the basis for this porcelain dinnerware made in Japan. Rather than following prescribed forms and functions (dinner plate, soup bowl, etc.) the collection consists of plates and bowls of various sizes that can be used interchangeably to both eat and serve. The solid ash and walnut trays double as underplates, coasters or lids. The porcelain itself is durable and dishwasher and microwave safe, with a pleasing natural variable color and texture that recalls soft sand. Glazed finishes round out the collection with matte black, glossy grey, and glossy blue options.
HASAMI PORCELAIN is from the historical town of Hasami in the Nagasaki prefecture of Japan and is made of a proprietary mixture of crushed stone from Amakusa traditionally used in this region for over 400 years. Due to the organic nature of making this type of porcelainware, color variation is normal and is caused by the uncontrollable chemical reaction between the glaze and raw materials during the extreme firing process. These changes in color and texture make each piece is one-of-a-kind and give HASAMI PORCELAIN its special character.
