Kumagai '熊谷' 
Kumagai has been the leading pottery company of Kyoto since 1935. Their tableware is made using a specialty technique called Hana-kessho (flower crystallization).
Hana-kessho are crystal flower patterns created by the chemical reaction of glazing.
The Zinc Oxide contained in this special glaze creates a snowflake like pattern as it melts and cools down along the surface of Kumagai porcelain.
The colours differ due to the mixing of natural minerals and the appearance of each crystal pattern and its colour changes each time it is fired in the kiln.
