The Starburst range is designed and made at the Ko family kiln in Gifu prefecture, Japan.
Made of 'Minoyaki' porcelain and hand finished at the Ko kiln in Gifu prefecture, Japan
The Starburst range features a traditional 'asanoha' pattern, symbolising growth and prosperity. A bright indigo blue over a white background.
The Ko Family kiln specialises in crafting small items that require patience and care. Tiny dishes, tea and sake cups plus their popular single flower vases can always be seen lined up on drying shelves in various stages of production. Ko-san's parents hand-finish all items - smoothing bases, painting edges or perfecting motifs with experienced, steady hands.
Slight irregularities in size, glaze and texture reflect the artisan nature of the product and are embraced.
General information & care instructions
Our tableware is food safe and can, with some care, be used in the oven, microwave and dishwasher. Sudden changes in temperature (eg. from freezer to oven) are likely to cause thermal shock, which will damage your item. Always place very hot items onto either wood or cloth.
