Modern Tableware Design
Today's modern tableware design of Hasami Porcelain was created by Japanese artist Takuhiro Shinomoto. The designing philosophy of Shinomoto was to create simple and modern tableware using the original manufacturing techniques of Hasami craftsmen in Japan. These crafting techniques are found in every step in the process of making our ceramics - from molding the clay to the final touches.
In our shop, you will find a broad selection of Hasami dinnerware, cups, plates, bowls, teapots, and wooden trays. Our selection is manufactured in the town of Hasami in Japan.
