Made in the 350 year old Touetsugama porcelain kiln (but intended by their designer, Oji Masanori, to be used and loved everyday) these delicate-seeming pieces are the perfect mixture of classic porcelain artistry and a modern sensibility. i.e: they're ideal for people who have exquisite taste who also eat breakfast off of plates and drink whiskey out of cups. While porcelain is often considered fancy or fussy, it's actually historically prized for its extreme hardness and strength. That classic, diamond-hard quality is combined with a warm, lustrous, alabaster glaze, and exquisite pared-down silhouettes that feel straight out of a Buddhist temple (or French brasserie) for beautiful, functional pieces that feel as wonderful in hand as they look on your table.
Take Care: Who said porcelain was high maintenance? These gorgeous porcelain pieces are good to go in the microwave, fridge, or dishwasher.

Lillian owns + loves these things!
This mug!! Slightly smaller than the "simple John Julian" mug but still big enough for morning coffee or tea. The glaze and shape of the mug (the way it feels to actually drink) are ridiculously satisfying.
