Mochi is cast in white earthenware ceramic, and glazed inlead-free white, yellow, violet, green, and pink.
Mochi is created using the single use packaging of an individually wrapped Japanese rice cake. Originally PET plastic, the packaging is used to create a plaster mold which produces this ceramic version.
The base of mochi is left unglazed and instead, is treated with organic beeswax. This layer of wax seals off the raw ceramic and prevents absorption of any liquids that might stain the base. The beeswax gives the base a tan color and a sweet smell!
Heir Ceramics are made by hand. Even though these pieces are created in molds, each is trimmed, cleaned, and glazed uniquely. Some pieces have small imperfections that give quirky character.
