Monohara Ceramic Collection by House Industries

by Grace Bonney

After the success of their Hasami Morning Collection, House Industries was invited by Hasami‚Äôs Kyohei Baba to create a new collection of ceramics. Debuting this December (this is a pre-sale sneak peek), House Industries’ Monohara Ceramic collection is beautiful 29-piece series that includes five plate options, six bowl sizes, teacups, teapots, a compra bottle and a tenugui cloth. Three different hand-crafted Japanese Paulownia wood boxes are also available and are as lovely as the ceramics they house. It’s been great to see Andy Cruz and his team at House Industries stretch their creative design muscles like this and I can’t wait to see these in person. If you’re lucky enough to be in Tokyo this month, you can check out the exhibit celebrating this new collection (and meet Andy!) on October 19th (Midori.so, 2F, 3F 3-3-11 Aobadai, Meguro, Tokyo, Japan). In the meantime, click here to check out the collection in detail and bookmark for later! Thanks, Andy! xo, grace
