HASAMI PORCELAIN is from the historical town of Hasami in the Nagasaki prefecture
of Japan and is made of a proprietary mixture of crushed stone from Amakusa
traditionally used in this region for over 400 years.
Due to the organic nature of making this type of porcelainware, color unevenness or
sometimes “staining” is normal and is caused by the uncontrollable chemical reaction
between the glaze and raw materials during the extreme firing process.
These changes in color and texture is not considered second quality nor defective within
the Hasami craftsmen community.
Each piece is one-of-a-kind and what gives HASAMI PORCELAIN its character.
