Urushi Japanese Cherry Sake Cup

Dimension: W 5.5cm x D 5.5cm x H 5cm

Weight: 30g

Material: Japanese Cherry with lacquer finish

The beautiful expressive texture of this sake cup makes me think of ceramics but when held in your hand its lightness gives its wood structure away.

Drinking from this sake cup is an experience like no other.

When I think of Japanese lacquer coatings I picture smooth and shiny surfaces so Think!Forest’s lacquer technic completely opened my mind to a new world of possibilities with lacquer finishes. 

Makiji Urushi technique is a build up of lacquer layers applied over clay powder creating this very unique organic looking texture.

Think!Forest is a workshop studio based in Kanagawa.

The creator and wood artist Mr. Tazawa’s philosophy is “Simple design, quiet form”.

He creates objects with refined form and everyday function combined with the art of Urushi/lacquer technique, creating a beautiful balance which is a credit to Mr. Tazawa’s skill and thoughtful philosophy.

Not suitable for microwave and dishwasher.


Made in Kanagawa, Japan
