Lacquerware Cup


An image elicited through etymology
Cups from ISUKE, a well-established creator of lacquerware. The name attributed to this kind of cup - sakazuki - stems from the upside-down reflection of the moon in the sake in the cup. This cup was designed using the gloss of the lacquerware, the elegant radiance of gold lacquer and the moon as a motif.
