Story

Hello there,

Munbeibi is a line of playful ceramics made by me, Hannah. I’ve been working in clay since 2014, and I primarily design and produce a series of otherworldly creatures called Munbeibis. I split each year between Sapporo, Japan, where I live with my sister and work out of Sapporo Tougei, and Victoria, B.C. where I work out of the Hands On Pottery collective. I was born on the East Coast of the US, and grew up in Northern California. Further personal details can be found -> (or below on mobile)

Munbeibiはハナシュスタが作った遊び心豊かな陶器のラインです。 ハナは2014年以来陶器を作っていて、ムーンベイビーと呼ばれる小さくてかわいい陶器の人たちをデザインして制作しています。 彼女は札幌、北海道に住んでいます。

Thank you to Ebetsu Ceramic Art Center and Sapporo Tougei for your wonderful pottery resources, and especially to: Otsuki Yasutaka of Nora-gama in Furano, Kawaguchi Hidetaka of Sora Kobo in Jozankei, and Katou Wakako of Atelier Sora in Sapporo - 先生のにとても感謝します !

Munbeibi Lore

Once upon a time, 238,900 miles from here, the Moon was made up of hundreds of little pieces of moon (rather than one big chunk). Those little pieces were called Munbeibis. They spent their time floating along with each other, observing comets and stars. They were generally known to be calm and contented creatures, but (as happens with many humans) some of the Munbeibis began to wonder what life was like in other lands, such as on that big blue and green rock their world constantly circled...

A few years ago, a small convoy of Munbeibis decided to set out from their lunar orbit to investigate Earth. After much travel and exploration, the Munbeibis settled in the forests and seashores of our planet, preferring the company of trees and stars to city life, marveling at the lush greenery and shifting water. Sometimes, they set out from their hiding places to say hello to a special human or two, to bring you wisdom from the cosmos, fruits, cakes and flowers, and a little warm company.
