Product Description

<About Kintsugi Part>
In order to create a new sustainable value, Mr. Suginaka, an urushi (Japanese lacquer) Meister, repaired and upcycled this vessel using Kintsugi, a unique Japanese ware repair method. This vessel was intricately cracked and required a high level of skill to join.
Although this piece had previously been joined with blue color urushi, he rejoined it with pure gold.
For this piece, we applied a Kintsugi as simple as possible to match the original appearance of the vessel, as in traditional Kintsugi pieces.

<About the original vessel>
This is Shigaraki ware, which was produced in Shiga Prefecture, next to Kyoto. Shigaraki ware is a famous tea utensil for the tea ceremony. Shigaraki ware is characterized by its unique warmth. The artist and production date are unknown.
This vessel was broken in the store during an earthquake and supposed to be discarded. To avoid wasting the diligent efforts their craftsmen put into handmaking each piece, we decided to revive them as new Kintsugi pieces.

<Thoughts behind the piece>
We created this piece with the hope that you will be enriched by drinking beer in this Kintsugi cup.
This Shigaraki ware beer cup, famous for its tea ceremony, does beer foam beautifully and deliciously.
Kintsugi beer cups are rare, so don't miss this opportunity! It is also recommended as a gift for your someone special!

May you feel the beauty of the imperfection in Kintsugi.

All materials we use are natural and do not have any risks of toxicity.

The piece comes with a Paulownia box, including care advises and a certificate of origin and quality.

How to care for Kintsugi Piece

  • After use, wash the pieces using a soft sponge and food-safe detergent.
  • Rinse them in lukewarm or cool water and completely dry them using a soft dish cloth.
  • Do not soak them in hot or cold water for long periods of time. This may cause the urushi or maki-e lacquer to peel or fracture.
  • The urushi (Japanese lacquer) may break or the maki-e lacquer decoration may peel off if the piece is dropped or if it collides with other hard objects. Please handle these pieces carefully.
  • Do not place these pieces in the microwave or dishwasher.
