Black Plate 01
Simplicity and modularity are the core concepts behind Hasami Porcelain. Hasami Porcelain is made in the historic town of Hasami, located in Nagasaki prefecture of Japan. For over 400 years, the proprietary mixture of crushed stone from Amakusa used in this clay and porcelain mixture have created some of the most beautiful pottery in the world. The plate/lid can be used as a lid to keep beverages warm, as a coaster to keep surfaces clean, as a planter saucer, or on its own. Microwave safe, and dishwasher safe. Made in Japan.
*Due to the organic nature of the porcelainware used for Hasami, unavoidable variations, color unevenness, and what Hasami craftspeople call “staining” appear in all Hasami Porcelain products. Variations are the result of uncontrollable chemical reactions between the glaze and the raw materials during the extreme firing process. While the shapes themselves are uniform, the coloration, flecks and texture unavoidably express the distinct make up of their clay.
