Hasami is a village in Kyushu (Nagasaki prefecture) specialized in making porcelain using Amakusa stones for over 400 years. Hasami porcelain called Hasami-yaki is well-known for its functionality and easthetic intended for a daily use.
HASAMI PORCELAIN collection was designed by Takuhiro Shinomoto founder of Tortoise in Venice, CA. His vision was to integrate modern tableware design with the organic quality produced by traditional Japanese manufacturing techniques.
Inspired by the Japanese traditional lacquer boxes (Jubako), 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.
Straight lines represent the essence of traditional Japanese aesthetics. The curves are the result of the inevitability of function and production. The rhythm and echo of the clean lines, created by stacking, enhance the harmony and beauty of the design.
Colors are variable depending on the position in the kiln and season (temperature and humidity). These features are part of the charm of Hasami Porcelain and must accepted as such.
