Beautiful tableware in everyday life
Dishes of various colors that brighten the tabletop, small dishes so simple and soft, platter strengthened by the rich texture of the soil, all are characteristics of Sakuzan tableware, which all have unique design and colors and hold a refined beauty.
President Nobuyasu Takai, established Sakuzan in 1987. After studying Interior Space design he started to work in Gifu City. At the age of 24 he returned to his hometown Toki city where he decided to take up pottery. His wish to create freely what he envisioned, was his start to create “Sakuzan”.
Takai’s style started with a very unique and eccentric works. After a few years, he thought once again about the type of works he wanted to create. For those living alone or as a couple, family, tableware is used in every lifestyle. I wanted to create tableware for such everyday life. That was when my vision for design changed.
