Hasami 85mm Short Bowl
This piece works well to hold salt on the counter or sugar at the coffee station. It also works well to hold small items like paper clips or rubber bands on a desk or a few cotton balls in the bathroom. Crafted from a proprietary blend of porcelain and clay; composed of a balance of curves and clean lines; functional yet artful. The texture of the matte bowls is very satisfying in the hand, like smooth wet sand; the gloss finish is a more traditional feel.
PLEASE NOTE: Coloration varies and irregularities occur. This is the charm of handmade ceramics.
Due to the organic nature of the porcelainware used for Hasami, unavoidable variations, color unevenness, and what Hasami craftspeople call “staining” appear in all Hasami Porcelain products. Variations are the result of uncontrollable chemical reactions between the glaze and the raw materials during the extreme firing process.
Difference in color and texture is not considered second quality, nor is it considered defective or undesirable amongst the Hasami craftsmen community. It is a prized sign of beauty of the line’s one-of-a-kind character and nature.
