About

Studio Matsumura is a handmade pottery & crafts store that brings to you Japanese-style influenced crafts.

My interest spans quite broadly from Japanese style Sumi-e brush paintings to manga-like lighthearted illustrations to natural leaves imprinted bowls and plates. Though, the common thread is that I like to create items that individually is an one-and-only item. I value "different-ness" and see it as uniqueness and character, not imperfection or an outlier. I also make sure that every design is different and no two are alike however subtle the difference may be.

But honestly, it's really not that complicated and I simply enjoy creating different "characters" in each item. Every one of the listing here is infused with my joy and I hope you'll receive it when it gets into your hands!

Frequently asked questions
Are the items listed here safe for use with food?

Items described as "dinnerware" were created only with materials marked as dinnerware use approved by its suppliers.

I use commercial porcelain, stoneware, earthenware clay following the manufacturer's instruction to reach the temperature to make the clay body mature.

I do not mix, concoct or create my own clay or glazes and use only supplier tested materials.

Are the dinnerware microwave, oven, freezer safe?

Items listed as dinnerware can be used with microwave, oven, freezer provided that sudden temperature changes are avoided. Abrupt and rapid temperature changes such as direct and immediate move from freezer to hot oven or extensive microwave can cause damage.

Can I use the dishwasher with your items?

Stoneware dinnerware are generally okay but care must be taken. For porcelain and earthenware, I recommend hand washing.

Are there any special care that is needed?

Other than what is noted above, another thing you may want to keep in mind is the location where you display the items. Avoid direct sunlight and area where sudden and/or high degree of temperature changes occur. Such condition while rarely causing immediate damage, it can age the items faster.
