Design by Alexander Purcell Rodrigues.
Made in the USA by Purcell Living.
The Sake Bomb Set is a new compact entertaining tool for sake lovers and epicurean enthusiasts everywhere. The cleverly designed ceramic pouring vessel, with four matching cups, was inspired by the juxtaposition of two forms: the Fugu Fish (Blowfish) known for its opulent sashimi cuts, and the World War II sea mines with a perilous reputation. A comical take on the western slang phrase "sake bomb", meaning to drop sake shots in pints of beer, this sake set has the explosive personality to match its functional form.
The ceramic bomb holds 8 fl oz (235ml) and comes with four small beakers, which perch neatly on its spines and make the set a perfect compact accessory. Manufactured in Los Angeles by traditional kiln methods, slip cast ceramic keeps your hot sake hot and cold sake cold. To warm sake, place Sake Bomb in the microwave for one minute.
Select from several vibrant colors, including a Limited Edition Ice Blue.
Designer: Alexander Purcell Rodrigues
Alexander Purcell Rodrigues launched his interdisciplinary studio in 2009. With an education from Cambridge University in England and the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, Alexander’s diverse creative background drives studio projects that run the gamut. He designs on every scale across a wide range of sectors including objects, furniture, art direction, interior environments along with a soon to be launched nomadic retail environment housed in the iconic shell of a 1973 Airstream Sovereign.
Over recent years, Alexander saw a paradigm shift in the conventional relationship between designer, manufacturer and retailer. With the desire to take control of this process he launched Purcell Living in 2011 to international acclaim. Through finding dynamic collaborations with specialist manufacturers in the US and Europe; Purcell Living has initiated new manufacturing methodologies breaking down the normal constraints of the development process.
Alexander's vision is to produce research driven, innovative designs that push the boundaries of aesthetics, technology and materials. His form language utilizes the controlled precision of modern technology without being defined by it; the touch of the skilled craftsman is far from neglected in his process. The manifestation of this are intriguing tactile products that capture the consumers imagination.View other products by Alexander Purcell Rodrigues
