This cup is designed by Makoto Koizumi and has smart yet pretty shape. It is unlikely that you
have even seen this type of cup but there are numerous advantages of using a coffee cup made of genuine wood and lacquer. The natural wood does not allow heat to pass through easily.
Therefore, you do not have to worry that you cannot hold it because it is hot. The cup with cold drinks does not bead with condensation either and it prevents the table from getting wet. The
natural wood cups keep hot drinks hot or cold drinks cold. Soft texture and a depth of
expression which are unique to Urushi lacquerware are created using "Hon Kataji" painting
technique.
Lacquer cloth is applied to natural wood on the parts of the piece that are easily damaged, such as edges, base footings. Then, diatomaceous earth collected from Mt. Komine in Wajima City
that has been fired and made into a powder called Wajima jinoko is applied as a base coat, then it is polished, given a mid-coat, then a top coat. The more you use it, the more it gains
brightness and luster and you can enjoy this change of expression over the years.
The handle has a moderate thickness and width which makes it stable when you hold it in your
hand. You can feel a gentle touch of lacquer through the tip of the finger. Extended shape
towards the bottom makes the cup stable when you put it on a table. They can be piled up if
the cups are the same sizes. They can be stored beautifully.
