Craftspeople often take inspiration from nature to produce new works. The design of this cup was inspired by the morning mist, called asagiri in Japanese. The gentle curves of its sillhouette combined with its soft blue pattern produces a subtle expression of floating mist created with a texturing technique called tobikanna.
This type of sake cup is called guinomi in Japanese. Its name is meant to reflect its relatively larger size and is made of two parts, gui referring the sound of gulps and nomi meaning ‘to drink’.

Not microwave or dishwasher safe.
