Sake Vessel

$ 195.00

Deceptively simply these sake vessels undergo a rigorous process making each piece a unique and impressive object. Made with techniques handed down over 400 years, molten metal is poured into a mould and allowed to solidify before being finished by hand. Made from 100% tin, the most expensive metal after gold and silver, it is said that tin removes excessive bitterness from sake and produces a better taste. The perfect drinking pair.

For more than 100 years Nousaku have been creating Buddhist altar fittings, tea sets and flower vases by hand from their factory in Takaoka City, Japan. Although their collection of objects has a demeanour of simplicity, they undergo advanced casting and refining techniques that often require multiple processes. With the use of both modern innovations and traditional craftsmanship, Nousaku use molten metals and moulds to create beautiful objects, each with an individuality and ‘soul’ of its own. Their mission as a company “is not only to explore opportunities and the meaning of handicrafts for future generations, but also to clarify our social significance in this civilized consumer society.”
