The Hasami Porcelain Mug is available in three colours choices. The Black and Grey colours have different glaze treatments while the Natural option is unglazed. Thanks to their modular design the mugs stack beautifully and are interchangeable with the Hasami Porcelain Plate and Trays. Crafted in Japan, Hasami Porcelain products are made from a blend of porcelain and clay creating a unique texture. This texture gives an organic feel, and though coarser than earthenware, it remains enjoyable to both hold and drink from.
Available in Black, Gloss Grey and Natural.
Available in three sizes:
Short 85mm x 72mm, 300ml Medium 85 x 89mm, 380ml Tall 85 x 106mm, 380ml
The charm of Hasami porcelain lies in the soft and comfortable texture that is carefully shaped with modern lines and pleasant aesthetics. There is a distinct natural feel to its 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 historic town of Hasami in Nagasaki Prefecture is one of the foremost pottery districts in Japan. Hasami began crafting its porcelainware almost 400 years ago during the Edo period, distributing them throughout Japan as well as to Europe through the port of Nagasaki. Hasami craftsmen were able to develop a highly efficient system to mass produce their porcelain products thereby making them more consistent in quality and reasonable in price. Hasami Porcelain was designed by Takuhiro Shinomoto of Tortoise in Venice, CA whose vision was to integrate modern tableware design with the organic quality produced by traditional Japanese manufacturing techniques.
