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.
This is unavoidable due to the manufacturing process, and please be aware of this as a characteristic of the product before purchasing.

Bleeding or blurring of the logo

ORIGAMI logo is drawn using a technique called undercoating and is printed under the glaze.
As a result, the glaze may melt and blur.
Also, since the logo is coated from the top, it will not fade or come off during use.

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.
When the glaze is applied, the organic matter attached to the dough is baked and becomes small dents.It is a phenomenon peculiar to pottery and is not a defective product.

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.
Therefore, even if the pottery is made of the same material, there will be variations in color and texture after firing.
The two items below have the same color, but the color depth may differ depending on the time of manufacture.

(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.
Please be assured that there is no problem in using it.


There are individual differences in weight and size even for the same product, depending on the production lot and glaze.
Therefore, the size and weight may differ slightly from those listed on the product page.
