Story

For over 400 years, the Kasen family has been hand-crafting their pottery with earth from the hills of Seto, Japan. Their Kitagama kiln was established in 1670 and is the only remaining Japanese kiln from that era. The earth the family uses in their pottery is so pure it can be used directly without any purification. The craftsmanship and style of Hiroshoge Kato Kasen, the family’s 12th-generation master potter, is on full display in his fabulous scalloped-edge dishes.

Kasen Pottery

The Kasen family has been hand-crafting their pottery with earth from the hills of Seto, Japan for more than four centuries. Hiroshoge Kato Kasen, a 12th generation master potter who learned the secrets of ceramics from his grandfather, creates pottery with soul on his family’s 17th century wheel.

Seto City, home to Kasen in the Aichi Prefecture, is one of the few places in Japan where the clay of the earth is so pure it can be used directly without purification. These hills are also a treasure trove for the ingredients in the natural glaze they use. Today, the city is the centre of Japan’s ceramic production, operating more than 60 traditional kilns.

These finely designed scalloped-edge plates are available in two colours and three sizes and are a masterful example of Hiroshoge Kato’s expertise in the field of ceramics. With the ancestral knowledge dating back 400 years, he has truly created a plate for the modern lifestyle.
