A wooden cup carved out of solid Japanese cherry birch. All carefully handmade by Yamanaka lacquer craftsmen, the only people who can achieve such a subtle beauty, smooth finish and thinness. The elegant grain of the material, and its soft curvy design somehow remind us of deep snow in the Yamanaka district, while also demonstrating the craftsmen's superior woodturning technique.
The “natural shibuki" pattern expresses a modern and sophisticated appearance using the traditional technique of "shibuki-nuri (spattering finish)," which has been handed down from generation to generation. A skilled lacquerer applies black spattering to the entire surface of the natural wood, giving each piece a different look.
