About Hasami Porcelain
Hasami Porcelain is molded by hand and rendered with an organic, almost primitive texture. The collection is modular by design; mugs, plates, and bowls all share the same diameter, allowing for easy stacking for storage or display. Inspiration for its stacking mechanism comes from tiered boxes used in Japanese cuisine, now repurposed for modern living. Hasami Porcelain pieces are hand-made in Hasami, Nagasaki, where ceramics have been the main craft industry for the past 400 years.
Please note: because of the handmade nature of Hasami pieces, some pieces may experience slight variations in glaze and colors. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.

Japanese philosophers once viewed the world as having five unique elements: air, earth, fire, sky and water. These elements are commonly used throughout Buddhist architecture and now have inspired this line of pure soy candles. From spicy to refreshing, each scent provides a vivid illustration of each symbolic element. Each candle is hand-poured from sustainable soy wax locally in the United States, and includes a Zen poem packaged within a beautiful handcrafted box.

As tea-making has become an art form over the centuries, so have matcha bowls themselves become works of art. The organic, undulating shape of traditional matcha bowls is designed to create the smooth, frothy consistency beloved by tea enthusiasts. Because of its essential role in the Japanese tea ceremony, a tea bowl is traditionally considered one of the most graceful and treasured items in your home. A jade-green crackled glaze coats the smooth surface of this piece, pooling into the bottom like a sip of leftover matcha.
How to Use:
To prepare matcha, pour boiling water into the tea bowl and allow to cool slightly. Add ceremonial-grade matcha using a bamboo ladle. Using a chasen (bamboo whisk), whisk vigorously in an “M” shape until the matcha reaches a creamy froth. Sip directly from bowl.
For best results, use ceremonial-grade matcha, a bamboo ladle, and 80 or 100-tip chansen.
Care: Owning a matcha bowl requires thoughtful handling and careful use. Because of their handmade quality, these bowls are not suitable for the microwave or dishwasher, and should be rinsed and dried immediately after use. Be careful not to introduce water that is too hot, as that may encourage glaze cracking.
