Mr. Tomii uses various techniques such as turning, moulding, and lacquer to create a unique world with precision, warmth, and a strong sense of purpose. By using it over time, the material, the creator, and the user become like a single, inseparable substance.” I'm looking forward to seeing you.
This chamfered sake cup is a work with a gentle touch that gives a warm feeling to the primitive chamfer. When you add sake, it looks clear and crisp, and the taste is the best, which is close to the human skin of wood.
Many people use it as a Chinese tea set, and it is a gem that can be used for many purposes. Highly recommended.
This is jet black and has a nice finish.
