Pokela is a simple and easy to approach tableware range made out of recycle clay.

The project was commissioned by Mr Hasegawa at the Green Life 21 project which is a nationwide clay recycle project aiming to produce environmentally sound products out of used and broken ceramics. The Pokela range was awarded a national Good Design award in Japan in 2004.
