The 15oz Hasami Coffee Mug is made from a blend of clay and crushed stone with a stackable design. Hasami Porcelain in natural and black has a slightly 'sandy' texture--a quality that the brand is known for.
Hasami Porcelain was designed by Takuhiro Shinomoto of Tortoise in Venice, CA whose minimalist style has gained popularity among designers and decorators. Shinomoto’s vision was to integrate modern tableware design with the organic quality produced by traditional Japanese manufacturing techniques. The Hasami Porcelain collection is highly functional–pieces are stackable and are designed to be mixed and matched.
The historic town of Hasami in Nagasaki Prefecture is one of the foremost pottery districts in Japan. Hasami began crafting porcelain goods almost 400 years ago during the Edo period, distributing them throughout Japan as well as to Europe through the port of Nagasaki.
