The proprietary blend of clay used to create this sugar pot and creamer was innovated by Taku Shinomoto, owner of a popular boutique in Los Angeles since 2003, and rests somewhere between fine porcelain and durable, long-lasting stoneware. This hybrid creates a piece that is substantial and strong, yet soft and smooth during handling and serving. The specially developed matte glaze serves to bring out the natural texture of the unique clay mixture.

To create this stacking creamer and sugar bowl set, local clay from Hasami, Nagasaki—a region famed for a history of over 400 years of porcelain manufacturing, beginning in the urbane Edo period of Japan—is poured into uniform plaster molds. The creamer and sugar bowl nest for neat storage and easy transport. The streamlined creamer has a delicately sculpted spout. A small dip along the edge of the sugar bowl creates a resting spot for a spoon, simplifying serving coffee and tea to guests. 

Use & Care

This sugar bowl and creamer set is dishwasher and microwave safe, but should not be placed in the oven.

Production & Design

Husband-wife team Keiko and Taku Shinomoto own Tortoise, a popular housewares boutique and functional object art gallery on Abbott Kinney in Los Angeles. Together, they live a “tortoise-life”: eating, doing, making and consuming mindfully and carefully. Their stoneware products are simple but elegant, modern yet traditional. The pieces are mix-and-match and completely versatile for daily use: a lid can be used as a plate or a tray, for example. At the same time, the unique matte glaze and refined proportions impart a sense of something special and ceremonious to everything from a cup of coffee for one to a tea party for six.
