Specializing in fine ceramics, each porcelain piece is handmade combining traditional Mingei style Japanese Art and Industrial Design to make a “New Modern” style of functional porcelain. Mingei is the handcrafted art of ordinary people and coined by Yanagi Soetsu, who saw beauty in the ordinary and utilitarian objects made by unknown craftsmen.

For Yanagi, everyday objects made by common folk are beyond beauty and ugliness. Mingei crafts are typically producted by hand in quantities, inexpensive, used by the masses, functional in daily life and representative of the region where the objects are produced.
