Founded by Takuhiro Shinomoto of Venice, California’s Tortoise, Hasami Porcelain blends traditional Japanese pottery with modern lines. Named for Hasami, Nagasaki—a prominent pottery region in Japan—Shinomoto’s tableware is made from a mixture of porcelain and clay, which provides a softer, more natural touch than conventional porcelain wares. Building off the 400-year-old Japanese pottery tradition, Hasami Porcelain’s products feature a blend of simple, straight lines and functional curves. Designed to be stackable and versatile, each piece is suitable for everyday use, while also a beautiful complement to contemporary décor.
