What we would like you to understand about the characteristics and products of porcelains
After inspection, the following phenomena may occur even for products that are shipped as non-defective products.
Bleeding or blurring of the logo
ORIGAMI logo is drawn using a technique called undercoating and is printed under the glaze.
Iron powder (black spots)
Even white ceramics contain iron in the clay that is the raw material of the pottery, which appears as black dots on the surface when the pottery is fired.
Glazed porcelain may have small pin depressions.
Individual differences in glaze (color, texture)
Porcelain shows a variety of expressions depending on natural conditions such as the season and temperature, as well as the effects of the glaze and the heat during firing.
(Left) Dark (Right) Light
Irregularities in color and texture
Depending on the shape and thickness of the vessel, the thickness of the glaze and the degree of exposure to the fire may vary.
Example of color unevenness
Example of fine unevenness on the surface
Example with many small holes on the surface
A portion of the back of the handle of the black cupping spoon may be white, but this is because the glaze is not applied to that portion of the cupping spoon as it is fired while suspended. It is not damaged such as chipping.
There are individual differences in weight and size even for the same product, depending on the production lot and glaze.
