HPW051 Cup White
Hasami-cho, located in Nagasaki Prefecture, is one of Japan's leading ceramic industrial areas. Porcelain tableware has been crafted here for over 400 years dating back to the Edo period - a rich tradition that continues to this day.
What sets Hasami Porcelain apart from over vessels is the sensation one gets when using these pieces. Compared to other pottery these pieces have a texture and matte colour that lends itself to a more organic feel enhancing food and drink.
The collection from Hasami is free from decoration with a concentration on traditional form and a clean straight line which is at the essence of Japanese design. This creates a beautiful harmony between all the pieces in the collection.
With a consideration for usability, this collection is completely free stacking. Therefore users can mix and match pieces from the collection: a plate can sit in a bowl for storage and then be used as a plate itself when the time is right. It also serves well for storage efficiency in areas with limited space.

Hasami Porcelain embraces a centuries-old tradition of craftsmanship to create functional and uniquely beautiful porcelain tableware. Their commitment to quality, authenticity, and the handmade process sets them apart from mass-produced, factory-made ceramics.
Each piece in their collection is a labor of love, handcrafted by skilled artisans who follow a time-honored process. From the meticulous mixing of raw materials to the careful molding, glazing, and kiln firing, our craftsmen and craftswomen contribute their expertise to ensure the creation of a one-of-a-kind piece.
What makes Hasami Porcelain truly special is the natural variation and imperfections that arise during this artisanal process. They don't see these as flaws; they are the marks of authenticity that make each item in the collection unique. No two pieces are exactly the same, allowing you to bring a touch of individuality to your table.
In the Hasami village, specialization is a key factor in the production process. Craftsmen in different areas of the village excel in specific tasks, and this organized approach has been passed down through generations since the Edo period. They believe in preserving these traditions and supporting the livelihoods of the local artisans.
