This sake cup demonstrates how Takashi Endo’s ceramics are both bold and delicate. Handcrafted from purion clay, the cup has a speckled effect as a result of Endo’s favoured firing process, imbuing it with an interesting and organic texture and heightening an awareness of its materiality. Made with Endo’s characteristically thin rim, the cup is wide and lightweight, a beautiful addition to the home with its calming sculptural properties.
As all products are handmade, sizes and colour may vary slightly.
