Kisen Bamboo Tall Silver Takaoka Copperware Guinomi Sake Cup
The grain of the plain wood and the dull, shiny silver brass are contrasting in weight and texture, but are boldly combined to create a delicate silhouette.
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 Japanese beauty associated with bamboo and at the same time the tight lines create a delightful rhythm. The proportions are both innovative and stable.
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, as it is just the right size. The design has a strong presence, and will add a touch of elegance to your table coordination.
