Designed and made in Kyoto (Japan).

Product description
Hand-made sake cup (guinomi).
The peculiar light-blue color is the result of Naoto Suzuki's unique glaze, made mixing materials and with a total of four kiln firings. The potter and artist will manually apply each layer of glaze then fire the items. The result is a multi-layered color, with several tones of light blue appearing over one another. The final effect sports a beautiful balance between raw looks and fine shapes.
Since each glazing and firing is an irreplicable process run by hand, there is not one piece that will look the same as another.

Designed and made by Kyoto-based potter and artist Naoto Suzuki (Kyoto), 4th generation potter of Kyo-yaki.
A subtle Japanese feel, with a unique universal twist of fine artisanship.

The item comes in an especially designed, Kyoto-made wooden box, called kiribako.

Instructions for use
Pour your favorite sake in the cup and enjoy. Japanese customs say sake will taste best when served from a flask you love, be it hot, cold, or at room temperature (see our article about Japanese sake to know more).
Matching flask and sets also available on KiGinKin.

Care
Wash immediately after use. Wipe the outside with a dry cloth, and let the inside dry naturally.
