House Industries Monohara Ceramic Collection from Hasami

10_07_13_houseindustry_monohara_10

Monohara Ceramic Collection by House Industries for Hasami is a tableware collection celebrating the legacy of the artisans in the Nagasaki prefecture town of Hasami, who have been have been manufacturing ceramics for over four centuries, and their revolutionary climbing kilns once produced the highest volume of daily-use cups, bowls and plates in Japan. Hasami has commissioned House Industries to create a new brand by designing a tableware collection that can translate and promote this legacy on an  international level. House Industries artists found much of our inspiration quite literally in Hasami’s backyard—the trench filled with 400 years worth of cast offs and blemished items. Artifacts from Hasami’s ceramic trash pit are the best link to the past and one of the keys to Hasami’s future, so Kyohei named his new brand Monohara, which translates colloquially to ‘The trash pit next to the climbing kiln.’

The nesting ceramic collection includes five plate options, six bowl sizes, teacups, teapots, a compra bottle and a tenugui cloth. Three different hand-crafted Japanese Paulownia wood boxes are also available: One for the entire collection, one for a set of plates and one for a complete tea service.
