The Hasami Porcelain mug is designed by Takuhiro Shinomoto. The blending of traditional Japanese aesthetics with simple modern lines to create beautifully designed modern objects that can be used everyday.
Hasami porcelain is made in the village of Hasami located in Nagasaki, a specialist Porcelain town for over 400 years. Using traditional glazing techniques with a proprietary blend of natural stone and clay materials, the outer texture of Hasami Porcelain is a result of many years of development to bring out the very best of these raw natural resources.
The natural colour has a textured finish while the Black and Gloss Grey have a smooth finish with the texture apparent on the rim of the plates, bowls and mugs.
The bottom of the mug is slightly recessed making the mug look like it hovers on the table. The mug will pair with the 8.5cm plate that can be used as a coaster, lid to keep your coffee or tea hot or to hold your favourite biscuits.
Each piece is individually boxed making them a beautiful gift that can be used everyday.
