Before purchasing, please read and look at photographs showing the unique traits of Hasami Porcelain by jumping to: Every Piece Unique - Common Variations and Recommended Care Instructions for Hasami Porcelain

HASAMI PORCELAIN is made in the historic pottery town of Hasami, located in the Nagasaki prefecture of Japan.  The clay used is 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 porcelain-ware, color variation among different pieces, color unevenness within a single piece, and appearance of 'staining' in the glaze, and textural difference, is all completely normal and part of its organic aesthetic. 

It 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 os one of a kind, and what gives HASAMI PORCELAIN its unique character.
