ReIRABO is a reinterpretation of “irabo” glaze, an ancient glazing method often still found in traditional pottery such as Japanese matcha bowls or handworks by skilled potters. The uneven texture of glaze is the beauty of irabo, and it is celebrated as a unique character making every piece one of a kind. This technique is usually challenging to stabilize and handle for use in microwave ovens and dishwashers, however, after repeated testing, Yumiko Iihoshi has adapted her own original irabo glaze and developed a selection of modern tableware that pushes the boundaries between a handmade product and machine-produced. Every shape and size are well designed and considered for easy-to-use and fun to serve Japanese foods and many other dishes for your own dining set-ups.  


Take pleasure in the perfect sized bowl for whisking matcha green tea. Fitting snugly in the hand, you can slowly enjoy the act of preparing and savouring your favourite drinks, not only for matcha but also caffe latte, chai, hot chocolate, etc… This Matcha bowl can also be a great serving bowl for soup, breakfast yogurt, or dessert such as ice cream.


The ReIRABO collection offers cups, plates and bowls in the same colour options. Ideally enjoyed using your own mix and match style.


* Because each piece is finished by hand, there may be slight variations and unevenness in colour. These are not considered defects, but added value. Please enjoy discovering the individual expressions found on each item.

Yumiko’s concept is to create a design that is on the boundary between handmade and conventionally manufactured products. 

After graduating from Kyoto Saga University of Arts, studying a Porcelain major, Yumiko started her own porcelain collection under her own name.  She designs and oversees the manufacture of porcelain tableware which combines the use of molds for uniformity, with hand glazing by artisans, to ensure each piece has a sense of individuality.  Each ceramic glaze and shape is unique and original, taking inspiration from the functionality and pure sense of a vessel. 

“It is not something that every single claim is too apparent. I thought that it would be nice to have warmth in design, but not argue too much.”

The aesthetic forms and unique palettes are infused with a sense of nostalgia, inspiring us to reflect and reminisce about time while using it in our daily lives.

All products are crafted in Japan.
