Created from porcelain made from natural Amakusa pottery stones mixed with potter's clay, the appeal of Hasami Porcelain lies in its textured feel on your lips and in your hands. This tea pot is much more sleek and refined than earthenware, yet compared to ordinary porcelain its texture is pleasantly organic-feeling.
With a four hundred-year history, Hasami in Nagasaki Prefecture is Japan's leading region for pottery. While traditional techniques and designs continue to be employed to this day, Taku Shinimoto, owner of a popular boutique in Venice, California, has lent his vision to these traditions in order to create innovative tableware with a modern twist.
