Using a katakuchi (sake server) and a guinomi (sake cup) makes the experience of drinking sake so much richer. In Japan we share sake by pouring for each other from a katakuchi. For us this is a form of communication. Enjoying sake little by little from a small cup makes for a very relaxing evening. It is also useful for as a water cooler for tea or to serve sauces and dressings.
White is an orthodox clean color that suits all kinds of food and interior aesthetics. White is pure and simple and yet no white is the same. There are creamy whites, cool whites, grayish and pinkish whites. I like the softness and subtlety of whites.
It is often said that fluted dishes reflect the maker’s personality. Rather than focus on precision I prefer to let the rhythm and energy of the moment dictate the outcome.
Hanako makes each piece by hand, one by one. Slight variations in size, shape, color, and surface are inherent to the process. We hope you will embrace these small differences as characteristics that give each piece individuality and character, making them all the more lovable.
