We always strive to create vessels that serve as tools for telling each person’s story.
Handmade goods should not retain many traces of their creators.
Manufactured products should not be too dreary.
We create our works based on this concept: “on the border between handmade and manufactured products.”
For our manufactured product series, we aim to create tableware that are mass-produced yet warm.
To achieve this goal, we ask craftsmen from potteries across Japan to create original colors and shapes using manual processes.
Each individual piece has a different look, and each shows different shades when glazed, which is what inspires fondness in the user. We believe that this is a unique merit of yumiko iihoshi porcelain that cannot be found in dreary, mass-produced tableware.
We hope that our tableware will bring more moments of fondness to our customers’ daily lives.
