The collection from Hasami is free from decoration with a concentration on traditional form and a clean straight line which is at the essensce of Japanese design. This creates a beautiful harmony between all the pieces in the collection. 

With a consideration for usability, this collection is completely free stacking. Therefore users can mix and match pieces from the collection: a plate can sit in a bowl for storage and then be used as a plate itself when the time is right. It also serves well for storage efficiency in areas with limited space. 

Each Hasami piece is handcrafted by skilled artisans, it is not mass-produced nor factory-made. Many craftspeople participate in the creation of each piece of Hasami from the mixing of soil and stone, the molding of the product, the glazing of each piece and the final kiln firing process. Therefore each piece is naturally different from all the rest: these natural blemishes or slight irregularities should not be misconstrued as flaws. This is what makes each handmade piece unique.
