HASAMI Mug Cup Black 85×72
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.
HASAMI PORCELAIN’s 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 achieves the status of a 21st century masterpiece of contemporary design while seamlessly melding together its traditional roots. It’s simple yet functional design is perfect for either special occasions or for daily use.
HASAMI PORCELAIN masters both multifunctionality and practicality in its design. The shapes and sizes of all mugs, bowls, lids and accessories are designed in precision to be made stackable for ease of serving foods and for efficient storage.
The inspiration for this stacking concept came from traditional Japanese lacquered tiered boxes or Jubako. Like the Jubako, HASAMI PORCELAIN can be used for serving foods individually, as a set, as well as for both indoor or outdoor settings.
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.
