This vessel is designed to enjoy sake and coffee with the flickering flame expression of Yamanaka Lacquerware’s Murakumo-nuri. Each piece of Murakumo-nuri is unique and there is no two pieces are alike. Furthermore, Yamanaka Lacquerware’s woodworking techniques have created a gentle drinking mouth and a curved shape bottom. It can be swirled, and by exposing it to air, the taste and aroma of sake or wine can be changed. The movement created by the swaying expression and shape of the Murakumo-nuri gives a sense of healing.
