*Please note dimesions are listed in centimeters
A hexagon shape in the image of a honeycomb. In Japan, this motif is also called turtle shell and is a symbol of luck.
This calm shade is soft and classical and compliments any food palette.
Some pieces contain a crackle pattern in the glaze, called crazing. Crazing and the occasional pinhole (small hole in the glaze) are characteristics of green celadon. The same can be seen in old Chinese celadon pottery, and some even try to accentuate the crackle pattern. It is a result of kiln temperature fluctuation and is a naturally occurring phenomenon, a matter of luck as I see it. Glaze crazing does not affect the structural integrity of the vessel. Industrial manufacturing tends to define such occurrences as "defective,” but I hope that you will consider it a positive aspect of handmade work that contributes to the uniqueness of each piece.
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.
