The Beauty of Imperfection

We look for fukanzen no bi - the beauty of imperfection - in people and places and things. We find handmade Japanese homewares that, in their imperfection, bring warmth and enjoyment into our lives; homewares which are imbued with the character and depth of their maker. Our aim is to provide a bridge for the makers we meet in Japan to reach other parts of the world.

Every one of our plates, bowls, vases and accessories has been made to be used, we are not a gallery or museum. We love tradition, technique and history, but it can never be at the expense of making home accessories to be handled, used and enjoyed. In this respect our products are completely normal, everyday items but at the same time they are special and delightful, hopefully bringing enjoyment and pleasure to your everyday life.
