This three-dimensional shaped multi-use plate is made by Tadahiro Baba, who is an ironware craftsman creating various motifs through his original viewpoint. Nambu ironware was originally developed about 900 years ago in Japan and was made more prominent by the Nambu clan, in Morioka City, in northern Japan, about 400 years ago. All of the required materials, including iron sand, river sand, clay, lacquer and charcoal were available locally. In their efforts to develop their area culturally and economically, they invited artisans from Kyoto - the capital of Japan at that time.

Hasami Porcelain is a collection of pieces that strive to mix and match in function. Made to be stacked, their pieces are stored and carried easily. The materials are unique- made of a mixture of porcelain substance and clay, at a specific ratio that creates a texture that is firmer and sharper than earthenware, yet comfortable to the touch of the hands and lips. Each piece is kiln-fired without glaze, leaving the surface feeling similar to terracotta. Use the bowls and plates as is, or pair them together to form a handsome covered bowl. The larger pieces may also be used as serving trays/dishes or as fruit bowls.
Microwave and dishwasher safe.
