花杯「椿」 / Tsubaki

掌でふわりと包み込みたくなる、まるい木地。ひとつひとつ、丁寧に縁を掘りこんで、咲き始めた椿の花弁を表現しています。覗きこめば、きらきらと光る金箔の蕊。早春の夕べに、とろりと透きとおる日本酒をめしあがれ。

A small round sake cup that fits in the palm of your hand. The edge is carefully curved to depict a camellia flower starting to bloom. On the bottom of the cup glitter golden stamens. Pour sake and enjoy an early spring evening.
