Nagasaki Hasami Porcelain
Award Recipient: Tokyo Saikai Co., Ltd.
A ceramic that incorporates new designs and techniques in the traditional technique of the city of Hasami-cho, Nagasaki Prefecture, which has a history of about 400 years. The base material is a natural porcelain raw material “Amakusa pottery stone” that can be obtained in the Amakusa Islands of Kumamoto Prefecture. As a result, it is sharper than pottery and has a rough texture that is not found in porcelain. In addition, the original design emphasizes its appearance by omitting the decoration.Mugs, bowls, trays, etc. are designed with a common diameter, allowing free stacking. It also combines the beauty when it is stored.This idea is inspired by the traditional Japanese container “Jubako”.
Reason for Selection
Simple yet practical design is good. It is functional to be layered and looks beautiful.
