Hasami, Nagasaki is one of the foremost pottery districts in Japan. Porcelain was first made in the area almost 400 years ago, during the Edo Period, and was not only distributed all over Japan but also exported to Europe through the port of Nagasaki.
HASAMI PORCELAIN is made of a mixture of porcelain substance and clay, at a specific ratio. Samples made precedently in Hasami were recreated, and a glaze was developed to bring out the natural material.
They are also multi-functional. For example, a tray can also be used as a lid.
