Description:
HASAMI PORCELAIN is a stackable, modular ceramics line designed in Venice Beach, California by Tortoise General Store owner, Taku Shinomoto, and made in Hasami, Japan. HASAMI PORCELAIN's Gloss White Mugs are made from a proprietary mixture of crushed stone from Amakusa that has created some of the most beautiful pottery in the world, as pieces cherished for their individuality. This mug is stackable with other 3.3/8" diameter pieces.

Measurements:
ø 3.3/8" x 4.1/8"
Volume: 15oz

History: 
HASAMI PORCELAIN is made in the historic town of Hasami, located in Nagasaki prefecture, Japan. Taku Shinomoto lives in Venice Beach, California but originally moved to the United States from Tokyo, Japan where he worked as a furniture designer for a Japanese design company called Idee. Since then he has designed HASAMI PORCELAIN, a brass line called S/N, as well as other products in Japan. Currently, he continues to design furniture in Los Angeles - most recently couches, side tables, book cases and dining table sets.

Materials:
Ceramic

Variation: 
Due to the organic nature of this type of porcelainware, there are unavoidable variations, color unevenness, and what Hasami craftspeople call "staining" in the appearance of all HASAMI PORCELAIN products. These variations are the result of uncontrollable chemical reactions between the glaze and the raw materials during the extreme firing process when producing HASAMI PORCELAIN. Difference in color and texture is not considered second quality, nor is it considered defective or avoidable amongst the Hasami craftsmen community.

Care Instructions:
Dishwasher safe. Microwave safe. Not oven safe. Not safe to place over a flame. When you stack your pieces, please be mindful of not crashing pieces together to cause fractures. Staining and changing of color will naturally occur over time as ceramic is a natural material. This type of aging and patina is to be cherished, and does not mean that the piece is dirty or unsafe.
