Hakuji (白磁) represents a distinctive form of Japanese pottery and porcelain, primarily characterized by its pristine white appearance. Originally inspired by Chinese Dehua porcelain, Hakuji has evolved into an iconic style of its own, celebrated for its unadorned elegance.
In contemporary Japan, the term 'Hakuji' is synonymous with unadulterated white porcelain. This porcelain variety refrains from colorful embellishments or intricate patterns, allowing its pure, luminous white to take center stage. It finds its most common expressions in items such as bowls, tea pots, cups, and various other essential elements of Japanese tableware, embodying the essence of simplicity and refinement.
