HASAMI PORCELAIN is made in the historic pottery town of Hasami, located in the Nagasaki prefecture of Japan.  The clay used is a proprietary mixture of crushed stone from Amakusa, traditionally used in this region for over 400 years. 

Due to the organic nature of making this type of porcelain-ware, color variation among different pieces, color unevenness within a single piece, and appearance of 'staining' in the glaze, and textural difference, is all completely normal and part of its organic aesthetic. 

It is caused by the uncontrollable chemical reaction between the glaze and raw materials during the extreme firing process.  These changes in color and texture is not considered second quality nor defective within the Hasami craftsmen community.  Each piece os one of a kind, and what gives HASAMI PORCELAIN its unique character.

Care Instructions:
Dishwasher safe.  Microwave safe.  Not oven safe.  Not safe to place over a flame.

Hasami Porcelain is dishwasher safe and durable, but not chip-proof or break-proof.  If there is a contact or impact, this piece may chip or crack.  When you stack your pieces, please be mindful of not crashing pieces together to cause fractures.  

Staining and changing of color will naturally occur over time as ceramic is a natural material.  This type of aging and patina is to be cherished, and does not mean that the piece is dirty or unsafe.
