For this incense the Jinkoh (Aloeswood) is combined with Sandalwood and natural herbal scents, creating a deep aroma. The fragrant notes of Aloeswood are sweet, spicy, bitter and sour and can be found in South-East Asia's Myanmar, Vietnam, Cambodja, Indonesia and Laos. Remarkedly, the young Aloeswood tree has no scent, which develops as the tree grows. As the tree ages and it is exposed to bacteria native to the area, the tree develops an aromatic resin. Over time, this develops into a very dark and rich resin, with a distinctive and lovely fragrance. The Aloeswood wood does not float in the water, due to its density and high percentage of resin. This is why Aloeswood is coined "Jinkoh" in Japan, as it means " A fragrant and heavy wood that sinks".

Hasami Porcelain is a collection of tableware manufactured using traditional techniques designed with modern living in mind. Stacked and combined, the Hasami Porcelain pieces form a beautiful rhythmic harmony. The stacking mechanism, and the functionality of nesting, is inspired by tiered boxes - traditional lacquer ware - used in Japanese cuisine. This way plates also become lids for bowls; all pieces of the collection are multifunctional and complementary to each other. The result, a beautifully aesthetic cupboard, kitchen or office pantry.
Hasami Porcelain - Made in Japan
Hasami porcelain is made with traditional techniques, a specific ratio of clay and porcelain forms the mixture and is poured as liquid clay into plaster moulds. Once removed they are then fired at very high temperatures making the porcelain strong and durable. This unique recipe creates a textured surface that has a distinctly organic feel compared to that of regular porcelain. Just as importantly, it is suitable for dishwasher and microwave usage.

About Hasami Porcelain
Hasami Porcelain tableware sees the whole table as part of the art of hospitality, drawing on more than 400 years of Japanese thinking on how we can turn even the simplest meals into an art form. All sensual aspects of a dish (including, but not limited to the meal) are considered, and drawn meticulously. The simple colours and rough-hewn textures form a canvas for even the most delicate flavours to play against, making room in our often busy lives to simply sit, think and enjoy.
As is typical for much of the porcelain-ware from the region, Hasami Porcelain uses stone quarried from the nearby island of Amakusa. The microstones in the clay from Amakusa break down in the heat of the kiln, naturally sealing the wares and giving Hasami Porcelain products their unique, primordial texture. Hasami Porcelain is also entirely modular. Perfectly stackable straight lines made with innovative techniques, ensuring that the porcelain stay precisely the right size. The result is a series of perfectly formed pieces that are easy to store and transport. Innovation is something that comes as naturally to the Hasami design team as their aesthetic sensibilities, and it draws on a historical basis. The rural mountainside village of Hasami in southern Japan, where Hasami Porcelain is based, has a 400-year history in porcelain making, selling their wares all over Japan. But when husband-and-wife team Takuhiro and Keiko Shinomoto visited the township a few years ago, they found not a porcelain empire but a rural village of 17,000, ailing after a decade of being undercut by the rise of plastics and mass-manufactured tableware from China. The fires lighting the massive kilns that still dot the town’s landscape were slowly going out. This lead to the Shinomotos establishing the Hasami Porcelain brand in 2012 as a way of helping to keep local knowledge — and the experimental, democratic spirit that comes with it — alive.
Here at Miscellaneous, we’re proud to stock much of the Hasami porcelain range both online and in our Amsterdam store. For tableware that’s both elegant and everyday, we really can’t go any further.
