SAKE CUP WITH BOX, #0724: $75

Here’s one in a series of new sake cups. Each comes with it’s own custom-made box. The cups measure 3+ inches in diameter and are between 1” and 2” tall. Small cups: I was first introduced to this size sake cup at the inaugural opening-celebration of a newly-built Japanese tea house. Mr. Shiho Kanzaki took me, along with Karl and Ginny Beamer as his guests. The pre-ceremony meal included some very tiny sake cups. My first thought was that they were almost too small to drink from….shallow and small-footed. But it was my perception that the inclusion of these lovely and delicate cups was less about consuming sake and more about putting a fine elegant edge on the experience. In that spirit, I made these small beautiful cups, and am including an individual box with each one.

A fine gift to yourself, or perhaps the solution to an upcoming gifting occasion. Enjoy!
