Why not share your finest tea with your finest friends? Shinamoto's beautiful pieces are crafted to fit together, stacked, towering, and paired with tea and a warm meal. Our own atelier is full of Hasami porcelain, oft-used and always loved. All this ensemble wants is a bouquet and a banquet.
Designed by Taku Shinamoto, our Hasami porcelain is produced in the southern region of Nagasaki Prefecture, Japan, an area with an enduring tradition of pottery production dating from the 16th century. The high-fired, earthen-hued modular pieces are uniquely crafted from finely ground stones harvested on Japan's Amakusa Islands.
