Makiji Sake Cup

by Yusuke Tazawa

A handcrafted sake cup handmade by Japanese woodworker Yusuke Tazawa. This black lacquered vessel is quite something, with the surface treatment being made using the Makiji method. The outside layer is covered with crude "urushi" lacquer and the powder of a sharpening stone, which leads to this slightly rough surface texture.

The sake cups are the perfect accompaniment to the pouring vessel that we also stock from Yusuke Tazawa. Even though this sake cup is small it's a real work of art.
