Kinto's range of Ceramics Lab mugs have been developed alongside craftsmen in traditional pottery villages of Japan and offer a fresh interpretation of Japanese tableware.
The items are made of sandstone unique to Hasami region in Japan, which mixes sand and rocks with local Amakusa porcelain stone. This creates the ceramic-like organic texture, while ensuring durability of high quality porcelain. The iron in the sandstone also reacts with the glaze to create deep nuanced expressions.
