Said to go back to the 1600s in a mountain village in Fukuoka Prefecture, Koishiwara ware is sometimes called the "ultimate beauty of usability design", due to the unique geometric patterns and ease-of-use, and has long been proudly used for serving food in the local area. Founded in 2008, "Koishiwara Pottery" is an original folk tableware created from the collaboration between potters in Koishiwara and food coordinator Tomoko Nagao. The shape, texture, weight, and design come together to create the warm feature of the ware and match any type of food and any occasion. Each piece is handmade by craftsmen, allowing for slight differences among them, which is another attractive feature.

Koishiwara Pottery is available in various kinds, including soup bowls, plates, cups, bread plates, shallow bowls, and deep bowls. In Kyushu, eight stores, mainly in Fukuoka City, sell Koishiwara Pottery products. Let’s go look for serving ware that will make your daily life more pleasurable!
