Yumiko Iihoshi Porcelain
Time Out says
Ceramic artist and pottery producer Yumiko Iihoshi’s retail outlet carries her eponymous brand’s entire line. Designed and crafted by Iihoshi herself before being reproduced at kilns across Japan, her pieces – existing, as she describes it, on ‘the border between handicrafts and commercial products’ – all maintain the highest quality and exude a warmth rarely found in mass-produced pottery.
We also love how Iihoshi’s wares combine style and convenience – most of them can even be microwaved and are dishwasher safe. The shop in Harajuku will move to the address listed on Jan 5, and Iihoshi also has another store on the fifth floor of the Isetan department store in Shinjuku.
