Hasami products use straight lines to represent the essence of traditional Japanese aesthetics and are designed to be elegant and functional for everyday use. This collection of products have been designed and based on a fixed module, with each piece sharing the same diameter so that they can be stacked and stored with ease and efficiency. Hasami porcelain can be used in various ways – indoors and outdoors, individually or as a set.
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.
Specialization serves as a key factor in the overall production process. Each product is passed onto different craftsmen in various parts of the village to undergo a specific step of handwork until the product is completed. Each craftsman is skilled in their own specialized role, such as the mixing of soil and stone, the molding of the product, the glazing, and the maintenance of the kiln during the firing process. They each contribute in their own way to create a piece that is naturally different from all the rest. This organization of labor in the Hasami village has been passed down for generations since the beginning of the Edo period.
Hasami Porcelain draws its name from one of the foremost pottery districts in Japan, Hasami Nagasaki. Ceramics have been made in the Hasami region for over 4000 years.
