The 'G-type' soy sauce pot is the most famous object by the Japanese designer Masahiro Mori. The small jug made of fine porcelain has been in production for more than 60 years and is suitable for serving and storing soy sauce and other sauces, oil or vinegar. There is a small hole in the lid that you can hold your index finger over while pouring and thus regulate the pressure in the jug - the soy sauce only flows when you lift your finger. Masahiro Mori was born in Saga Prefecture in 1927, the region is known for its porcelain. Mori studied ceramics and ceramic design before joining the Hakusan Porcelain Company in Nagasaki in 1956. There he designed Japanese tableware and brought modern shapes to the table. His pioneering work made him one of the most famous designers in Japan.
