Commitment to our products
We have mastered various ceramic techniques, and in addition to basic underglaze blue, red, celadon, and white porcelain, we also produce original blue mud, colored porcelain, floral reliefs, and street scenes, etc. We always emphasize the function as a "vessel" and create porcelain that is easy to use and pursues beauty.
HEGE tableware that can be used on an open flame allows you to fry, boil, and cook food without having to transfer it to another vessel, making cleanup and storage smart and complete.
It can be used not only for daily meals, but also for outdoor use.
From instant to full-course meals, it fits beautifully into your emotional daily life.
Commitment to our products
[HEGE was born out of the trust and technology for safe manufacturing that we have cultivated for more than 60 years since our establishment as a manufacturer that applies rust-free surface treatment to metal parts.
We have applied our technological capabilities, which have cleared the high-impact tests of automobiles and home appliances, to the craft-like daily life tools that you use in your daily life.
Aluminum, a renewable resource, is carefully formed one piece at a time by "hera shibori," a process that requires a technique similar to handwork.
The surface is then blasted to give it a sophisticated and austere texture, and finished with a thick anodized aluminum film finish that increases surface strength while preventing corrosion.
The moderate thickness and surface finish also resist scratches and scorching, and the heat conductivity is moderately adjusted.
Although it looks delicate at first glance, you will be able to enjoy the change in texture like denim as you use it tough.
[just a little bit extraordinary].
Commitment to Products
m.m.d. is a general merchandise store that opened in 2013 in Sakae, Nagoya.
At the time of its establishment, m.m.d. was a select store selling pottery from all over Japan, but now it is actively developing original products in cooperation with Seto City, Aichi Prefecture, where the pottery is produced.
We hope that the "just a little bit of the unusual" proposed by m.m.d. will color your precious daily life through our store and products.
We would be happy if we could help connect people with the traditions of the production areas through our products that combine simplicity of design and ease of use, which are also friendly to modern lifestyles.
