ASEMI CO.

The Asemi Co. collection of contemporary design combined with traditional crafts will take you on a journey through century old Japanese ceramics, while still allowing a well matching combination of styles, bringing timeless design into your home.

The Asemi Co. concept is the first of it's kind. The cups might look different at first glance, but all of the Asemi Co. cups have the same basic design, which makes it possible to combine and stack them, no matter where from Japan they are or which century old pottery style was used to create them.

Asemi Co. is the brainchild of designers and long time friends Yuki & Lars. Always being fascinated by traditional craftsmanship, they got together in 2015 to start the intercontinental endeavour that is now Asemi Co.

ASEMI ARTISAN

Asemi have picked a handful of artisans from all over Japan to give shape to the Asemi Co. cup with their own individual style. 

Our artisans are handcrafting each cup and burn them in a wood fired kiln, which makes the number of cups created small and exclusive. Each artisan gives the cup a unique appearance and showcases the fine quality of their traditional style of Japanese pottery.

KOISHIWARA-YAKI

Contemporary folk craft cups with an amazing subtle metallic gloss & unique “Tobikanna“ details.

The black metallic finish of Asemi Koishiwara-yaki cup is achieved through a unique glaze developed by Koishiwara Artisan. He mixes iron powder to the rice straw ash that he uses as the glaze.

The distinct pattern on our cups is done with a technique called “Tobikanna.” The artisan uses a metal tool to apply chatter markings on the half-dry surface of the cup, while it is turning on the potter’s wheel. True to its name the “jumping iron” leaves the typical Koishiwara-Yaki markings behind.

The artisan Yusuke Kumagae crafts the Asemi Co. Koishiwara-yaki cups in Koishiwara, Fukuoka Prefecture.
