While every piece looks gorgeous on its own, this ingenious line of Japanese porcelain is designed to stack together. Trays become lids, plates become coasters, cream and sugar come to the table as one, and everyone's shelves are brimming with happiness instead of mismatched dishware. Handmade in the Hasami ceramic district (home to traditional Japanese porcelain works for over 400 years) these pieces are made from a carefully calibrated mixture of local porcelain and clay. This mix, which is left raw on the bottoms and lips of glazed pieces, results in a beautifully matte natural ochre gray color and very fine grit texture that mellows with age and use. The slight roughness of the raw edges keeps pieces stacked firmly, no sliding around. Beautifully brilliant and exceptionally functional, just as it should be.
This lightly glazed Extra Large Gloss Grey plate would be suitable for a grand dinner feast... but we love to use it for cocktail hour nosh platters (the lip is perfect for keeping everything corralled) and (of course) cakes.
Stacks with: Hasami Ash Wood Round Tray - Extra Large, Hasami Porcelain Bowl - Extra Large
