Modern, modular, minimal. Hasami Porcelain use traditional manufacturing techniques to create ceramic masterpieces.

Hasami kindly keep our kitchens happy with a new delivery of porcelainware. But this is no ordinary porcelain, these guys have been at it for 400 years. Sprouting in the picturesque district of Hasami in Nagasaki Prefecture, they’ve mastered consistent quality on a mass scale, which is no small feat in hand-crafted ceramics circles.

Back in the Edo period, Hasami was distributed throughout Europe via the port of Nagasaki but, luckily, we don’t have to wait for the ship’s arrival. The re-stock is already on the shelves at Simon James Concept Store and additional size offerings are up for carefully handled grabs.
