Wappa Cedar Sake Cup -CloseoutNow: $42.00
This delicate Sake Cup pairs wonderfully with the Wappa Cedar Sake Bottle.
Using straight grain Akita Cedar, Magewappa art craft was first developed in the beginning of the 17th Century. Its first form took the shape of a lunch box made by a woodcutter in the Odate area of Northern Japan. The Lord of Odate Castle then encouraged the technique in a samurai's work and it grew in popularity. In recent years the craft has been used as a base for the development of new techniques and modern design. Popular for its straight grain and light weight, the Akita Cedar used in these products is more than 250 years old. This Sake Cup holds temperatures - both warm and cool - very well and does not produce condensation on its surface.
Renowned for its resilience, strength and beauty, Akita Cedar is an ideal application for this Wappa Cedar Sake Cup from designer Shunji Kurimori. And cedar's natural tendency to resist cracking and fading makes this piece an enduring addition and beautiful accent to a range of dinnerware collections.
