Our Bricks collection combines modern design with time-tested durability to create a distinctive tabletop setting. Made with special Shigaraki red clay blended exclusively for this series, the copper-toned trim provides an earthy accent against bold glazes. These versatile porcelain pieces are hand-glazed, and inspired by ancient Japanese wa (harmonious) textures and nostalgic Americana diners.
The Bricks Bread Plate is perfect for your morning toast or slices of cheese. Complete the set with matching bowls and mugs.
Prized since the 700s, Shigaraki clay comes from the bed of Lake Biwa in Shiga Prefecture and has a warm orange color. This clay is known to make very durable pottery. Potters who were influenced by Zen Buddhist traditions initially made tea ware with Shigaraki clay. The clay's rustic but arresting texture and color reflected their beliefs in simplicity, humility and the idea of being present in the moment.
*We do not recommend using knives on these plates due to possible scratching on the surface.
