EXPERIENCE A GROWING BEAUTY AS TIME GOES BY
– WITH A TRADITIONAL MATERIAL REVIVED IN A CONTEMPORARY OBJECT
HASAMI PORCELAIN EDITION is created in a porcelain with a manganese saturated oil spot glaze. The temperature of the kiln decides the characteristic of irregular metallic shades and patterns of the surface, which gives each cup a very unique texture and personality. Its presence resonates with deep & smokey qualities of the HAKUDO scent that also evokes various textures of earth and nature, and together they create a clear and tranquil mood.
The yunomi (湯のみ) cup with matching lid has been traditionally used in Japan to welcome guests and express gratitude when serving tea. Such a beautiful gesture is easily abandoned nowadays, and this detachment from the tradition became a source of inspiration to breathe new life into the almost forgotten item and to revive the subtle yet rich contentment in our everyday life.
