  • 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.

  • Not Oven Safe
  • Dishwasher Safe
  • Notes on dishwasher use

    As for the products without the "Not Dishwasher Safe" stickers, please make sure to use them keeping the below matters in mind.

    ※If tableware items collide each other in the dishwasher, they will get broken.

    ※Most ceramic items absorb water. Even if the surface looks dry, there may still be some water in the tableware, which may cause your tableware to get moldy or smelly. So, please take it out of the dishwasher immediately after use, and dry thoroughly in a place where it can be exposed to the outside air.

Features
  • 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.

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.

星空をお皿に。
そんなロマンチックな一言から生まれたシリーズです。
夜空に瞬く星たちをたどっていくと、
昔の人々が紡ぎ出した星座の物語が浮かび上がります。

壮大なストーリーの数々は、
人々に語り継がれ、現代の私たちにもつながっています。
毎夜広がる美しい星空に想いを馳せながらできあがったひと皿です。
大きな宇宙の物語を、星から星へと旅する気持ちで楽しんでいただけたら嬉しいです。

 

 

「皿に広がる星々をデザインする」

夜空に現れる星座を全面に配し、ドラマチックに仕上げました。
現れる時間や観測出来る場所など、パターンを何通りも試し、
心ときめく配置を試行錯誤しました。

見せたい星座を生かした盛り付けや
ロゴのアイテムとの組み合わせを考えることも楽しい使い方の一つです。

 

 

全面柄は、型屋の職人による手彫りでとても細かい仕事です。
星も文字も全て彫り起こしています。
星のサイズ感にもこだわることで、
遠くの星がうっすら輝く様子や明るく目に飛び込んでくる星など
実際に星空を見ているかのような奥行きが表現できました。

星型や丸を使い分け、ふたご座(GIMINI)の顔を星にするなど遊び心を詰め込みました。


中央を横切る凹の点線は、
天球上における太陽の通り道の黄道 (ecliptic)と天の赤道(equator)です。
凹凸装飾によりメリハリと躍動感を出しています。

リムには方角を彫り込んだ枠をつけて、天窓を覗いている印象です。
方角の表示に少し戸惑われるかもしれませんが、
皿と向かい合い天に向けた時の方角を表しています。

 

 

薄作りのため、
プレートには揺らぎが出ることもあります。

宇宙の大らかなイメージをここでも感じていただけたら、と思います。

 

 
「星が瞬く宇宙の色」

真夜中の深い夜の色、街灯がともる柔らかな夜空の色、夜明けの空、、、
様々な空の色を想像して色を考えました。

最終的に、レリーフが浮かび上がるように明るいトーンの2色を選びました。
どちらも透明感が適度にある釉薬です。

星たちが光っているようにも見え、食卓が爽やかになる印象です。
色むら、釉垂れの個体差は天の川にも見えてきます。

 

 

裏ロゴにも星が輝いています。

 


フラットな形状のプレートは、日常使いとして使い勝手がよく、
メイン料理やワンプレートに使えます。


キャンドルを灯して毎夜広がる美しい星空に想いを馳せ、
ゆったりとした時間が流れる中で食卓を囲んでみましょう。
