“Nabe O Kakomu” (鍋を囲む) means “sitting around the pot”, but in Japan the phrase conjures up a scene of friends and family gathering around the table to eat, drink, and be in communion. This Hakeme Donabe is a clay cooking vessel from Nagatani-en— an 8th generation pottery workshop in the Mie prefecture. The pot is made of clay from the bottom of Lake Biwa— 4-million-year old deposits known for its powerful heat retention, durability, and porousness. We hope this vessel contributes and bears witness to a lifetime of late night conversations with friends who stick around long after the candles burn out and the soup’s all gone.
