  • About Seasoning earthenware

    Ceramic is not as strong as porcelain or semi-porcelain, and its high water absorbency makes it susceptible to staining and, in rare cases, water leakage.
    We recommend that material number 1 be sealed before use.
    Material No. 9 should be treated by cooking porridge before use.
    *Sealing reduces the absorption of cooking ingredients and stains. However, it does not prevent them from being absorbed completely.

  • 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.

  • Color Shade Variations
  • Color Shade Variations

    Each piece has 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.

  • Color Irregularities
  • Color Irregularities

    There are 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 subtle 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.

  • 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.

Materials (Number)

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

Features

・Seasoning earthenware before use and for the first few times are essential to protect from stains and soiling. Please refer to “How to season earthenware”.
・Do not use abrasive cleansers and metal scrubbing brushes for items with over glazed designs and decorations. It may cause damage to the over glaze.
・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.
・Following features may be seen in some products which is derived by its material and manufacturing process.

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

・Even after seasoning, boiled extracts and oils will be gradually 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.

"Goshu engizara" in Japanese means five fortune plates. The design is inspired by earthenware molds for “Rakugan” Japanese traditional confectionery (dry confection of starch and sugar mixed and pressed into a pattern). The five motifs have been regarded as auspicious in Japan since old times. Our version is a collection of colorful, adorable, palm-size plates made of earthenware and by the color glazing scheme which is best suited to each motif. “Chidori” (Plover bird) in blue is one of them. Available in two sizes: small & mini. The applications of [motif mini plate]: you could serve salt and pepper, arrange them on a plate for accent or use them as a chopstick rest. Enjoy the mix and match by using different sizes, motifs, colors for varied purposes and effects!
