Pottery is an ancient craft known across cultures. From basic everyday use objects to refined and artistic pieces of craft, pottery appeals to our inner forefather, and though it is based on a complicated and demanding process, it is easily ”understood” and read as something that comes directly from earth to be used in our hands. The ASA ceramic set integrates simple form and functionality. The tactility of the striped signature patterns creates a functional grip friction and adds a little air between the fingers and the ceramic to isolate against the warmth of a hot drink. The gentle hands of Satoshi Masuda can be read and felt in every unique piece telling a story of history, design, functionality and handcraft. Satoshi Masuda Pottery was founded in 1995.
