  • About Microwave Safe

    A microwave oven heats or cooks food very quickly using short electromagnetic waves, namely, microwaves. In most cases, the microwaves heat the water content of the food. However, in some cases, the microwaves concentrate on the carbonized (burnt) parts of the food, causing the temperature to rise higher than the other parts. For example, the microwaves concentrated on the carbonized (burnt) parts of stir-fried vegetables can create a large temperature difference in /on the tableware item, which may cause breakage. In addition to water content, oil content is also heated. The oil has a higher boiling point than the water, so it heats up at a higher temperature, creating a very large temperature difference between the parts that contain oil and the parts that do not, which can cause breakage.

    ・Never soak hot tableware in water or place it on the cold kitchen counter. Avoid rapidly heating frozen foods or putting [the cold tableware just taken out of the refrigerator] in the microwave. A rapid change in temperature will lead to “crazing” (chaps) or breakage.

    ※The products with gold or silver paintings, or applied with particular glazes are not microwave safe. We put a “Do Not Microwave” sticker on those items, so please confirm it.

    ※Accessories etc., made of other materials are excluded from microwave safe items.

Features
  • Strong Color Shade Variations
  • Strong Color Shade Variations

    Each piece has strong individual color shade variations. Affected by glazes and natural firing conditions such as changes in temperature, humidity and other climate elements and also how to receive the fire in the kiln chamber, each piece has own expression. It is really difficult to make the completed ware exactly same in color by firing and glazing even when the same materials are used. 100 pieces show 100 kinds of expressions, as it were.

  • Strong Color Irregularities
  • Strong Color Irregularities

    There are strong color irregularities of applying a glaze or slip, which are different from part to part in a piece of ware. For example, some parts are glazed thinly or thickly depending on the shape of the ware. That leads to part-to-part differences in appearance of the clay in a piece of ware.

  • Glaze or Slip Drips
  • Glaze or Slip Drips

    The glaze or slip may look like dripping. There is unevenness of a glaze or slip when they are applied to ware by hand. There also appear glaze drips or slip drips, which are caused by the glaze or slip flows during firing.

  • Rough Clay
  • Rough Clay

    The surface may be rough due to the use of rough or coarse clay.

  • Pinholes
  • Pinholes

    Pinholes may be seen clearly on the surface. Pottery (earthenware) is mainly made from earth, and green ware contains a lot of air while biscuit firing. While glazed firing, this air inside the biscuit ware becomes air bubbles, which remain and look like small holes on the surface of the glazed part. Those small holes are called pinholes.

  • Crazing (Chaps)
  • Crazing (Chaps)

    Crazing (having chaps) may appear clearly on the glazed part. The “direct” crazing means having chaps originally. The “aging” crazing means having chaps over time as you use the tableware item. There is a difference between the shrinkage rate of the glaze and that of the clay, so crazing occurs. Note that those cracks do not come from the damage of tableware items. They might appear just before use, but it is no problem in terms of use. They appear on the surface of pottery (earthenware) and semi-porcelain.

  • Iron in Powder
  • Iron in Powder

    Iron in powder may be seen clearly on the surface. Pottery (earthenware) is made from earth, which contains iron. After firing green ware, iron appears on the surface in the form of black dots. Red or black earthen clay contains much more iron, and as a result, not a little iron in powder may appear on the surface of tableware items made from this type of clay.

  • Light Pink Marks
  • Light Pink Marks

    Light pink marks may appear on the surface of tableware items. They appear when a component of the base clay becomes oxidized and then develops a color while fired. Interestingly, each tableware item has the “one of a kind” pattern of light pink marks because they appear depending on a variety of mixed conditions such as components of the base clay, glazes and firing settings, etc. You can enjoy the unique distinctiveness that adds to your own tableware item.

  • Warping
  • Warping

    Warping in shape may be clearly seen. Ceramic ware is made out of clay, so even after formed, green ware is relatively soft and wobbly. Therefore, when it is made dry, it is affected by natural conditions such as temperature and humidity, so each piece may look different in size and shape and perhaps warping in shape may appear.

Materials (Number)

Ceramics are handled differently depending on the material. MARUMITSU POTTERY attaches a material number sticker to ceramic products. Please note the material number when handling the product in order to ensure long use.

Features

・The water repellent finishing is not 100% stain and soiling proof.
・There are products with a crackle effect on the surface as an intended design, and there are some products that will develop crazing over time.

Before using the item

・Before each use, soak in a sufficient amount of clean water and let it absorb for at least 30 minutes. This will block moisture from food and helps to prevent or reduce stains, mold and mildews. Visible spots may appear after this procedure, showing the item has absorbed water. The spots will disappear as it dries.

After use

・The effect of water repellent finish will gradually be lost with use. Please season the item as needed.
・Even with a water repellent finish and seasoning, boiled extracts and oils may gradually be absorbed due to the porous nature of earthenwares. Wash immediately after each use and let it dry completely before storing to prevent odor, stains, mold and mildews.

The "Folklore" collection consists of Japanese traditional modern pottery plates & bowls made by our skilled craftspeople, requiring a lot of time and effort. The black and blue versions are hand painted. A brush is used to make a circular pattern with many brush tones, which attracts the eye of everyone. The gray “sabi kairagi” is made with a traditional technique of first applying a layer of white powder-clay, which later crazes during firing. Then, by applying traditional Japanese brown paint, such a unique crackle pattern is created. Dishes with simple but great ingredients in Japanese and western style are perfect for the Folklore bowl. [16 cylindrical bowl] is in Japanese traditional design and ideally suited for presenting simmered food or tossed salad.
