Roughness and delicacy are the expressive elements of Ceramic Lab. Developed by working closely with craftsmen in traditional pottery villages of Japan, it is a fresh interpretation of Japanese ceramics and porcelain for the modern lifestyle. Knowledge and skills were inherited to develop the product —from the proportion of clay and glaze, to the sensitive transformations while firing that depend on temperature and humidity. Featuring the warm textures of clay, the humble designs give comfort to the user
In Hasami the cups are made of sandstone unique to the region, wich mixes sand and rocks with local Amakusa porcelain stone. This creates the ceramic like organic texture, while ensuring durability of high quality porcelain. The iron in the sandstone also reacts with the glaze to create deep nuanced expressions.
