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.
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.
