Meanwhile, for Hakata songsIt was Tomoya Nasuda who created the encounter of Hasami ware. He majored in the department of product design at high school and university, and after graduation, employed a home appliance manufacturer as a designer. After retirement, we have announced our own products while entrusting various tasks related to manufacturing, mainly design. I want to be involved in the work of the upstream process of manufacturing from the concept stage to the detailed design, not the surface -on -layer manufacturing involved in the design, so I learned the design skills through daily projects, and are now close to half of my work. Is becoming a job as an engineer.

I like the manufacturing site,After retiring from a home appliance manufacturer, Mr. Nasuda goes to various factories and studies regardless of genre. At that momentIn the Hakata song workshopMr. Tokugoro Shibata, who was also an intangible cultural property holder in Fukuoka City, learned how to make songs.With the trigger, we launch a project to revitalize the local industry.

It focuses on Hasami ware in order to take advantage of the characteristics of shape processing technology, the difficulty of communicating heat, and condensation, which are characteristic of Hakata songs.Hasami ware can mass -produce porcelain as the back is transparent when holding it over the light, and is characterized by the lightness and taste of the mouth when picked up, but it is easy to convey heat and drink hot drinks. I felt that there was an issue as a cup.

When hot hot water is poured, the heat is transmitted to the sleeve of the song, and it is possible to enjoy the scent of cedar. There are four colors of white, tea, green, and pink.
