Enjoy the beauty of the elegant "Hanazume" style with these "Ochoko" sake cups in gentle soft colors. Hanazume is one of the classic painting styles of Kutani ware and is cherished for its decorative floral patterns. 

The detailed flowers and leaves are created using an advanced transfer printing method. An initial draft design is meticulously hand-drawn, capturing the delicate intricacies of each petal and leaf. Following this detailing, genuine gold is used for their outlines, making each sake cup a splendid piece of drinkware. The gold outlines also add a sense of elegance to the gentle colors. A single blue line drawn inside the cup evokes a sense of refinement.

This sake cup set is ideal for celebratory occasions, such as New Year's day, birthdays, and parties. It makes for a wonderful gift for people who enjoy drinking sake with friends and family.

These sake cups will make your home bar a little more special and impress your guests and family. They can also be used to serve small portions of side dishes and be placed in bento boxes.

Available in a set of five, these sake cups are perfect for entertaining guests in a sophisticated atmosphere. They are also available individually.

FEATURES

HANAZUME STYLE

Hanazume is a traditional technique of Kutani ware. This style was introduced in 1913 by Shiro Mizuta, a skillful craftsperson in Kanazawa. A floral decoration covers the entire surface, and outlines are painted in gold. This luxurious style is representative of  Kutani ware.

ABOUT SEIJU KILN

Seiju Kiln is a Kutani ware kiln newly founded in May of 2023. Its name was bestowed with hopes of bringing happiness and auspiciousness through its tableware items adorned with traditional Kutani ware designs.

A standout pattern from Seiju Kiln is "Hanazume," a signature floral design of Kutani ware. Craftspeople meticulously hand-draw the initial designs and then employ advanced transfer techniques to imprint a stunning floral pattern onto the surface of tableware items. After the base colors are set and fired, delicate gold outlines are applied. Pieces undergo a second firing at a reduced temperature to enhance the gold lines' radiant shimmer.

About kutani ware

Kutani ware is a type of pottery produced in the Kaga region of Ishikawa Prefecture and it has a history of over 350 years.
It is characterized by the heavy brilliance of the five colors of green, yellow, red, purple, and navy blue that are applied to the bold and daring lines.
Its long history has evolved through the tireless efforts and enthusiasm of people who have sought innovation while maintaining tradition.
In the early 1700s, the Kutani kilns were closed, but about 80 years later they were opened and Kutani ware was revived.
The beauty of the various styles and methods of painting is known as "Japan Kutani" and is highly regarded around the world.
