Kisen Bamboo Short Turquoise Takaoka Copperware Guinomi Sake Cup
The plain wood with the grain of the wood left intact and the bright turquoise brass are contrasting in weight and texture, yet boldly combined to create a delicate silhouette.
This striking turquoise blue is the result of artificial green copper rusting, which has become a traditional technique.
The wooden cup is made by Yamanaka lacquerware craftsmen, a traditional handicraft of Ishikawa Prefecture, using the thinnest wood cutting technique in Japan. Natural wood used for this product has individual differences in grain and color shading, which we hope you will enjoy as a natural texture.
The proportions are small and stable, as if a tuft of bamboo had been cut out. The soft mouthfeel created by very thin and smooth rim and pleasant weight stimulate the senses beyond the sense of taste.
It is also recommended as a small bowl for serving food or a seasonal condiment container. The design has a strong presence, and will add a touch of elegance to your table coordination.
