This is an introduction to the art cup by The Nisten artist Kiyoteru Morita from Echizen-nuri.
This is a 100% hand-painted free cup made of wooden and hand-painted.
It is thinly ground and made very lightly.
It’s like floating in the air the moment you have it, and you can instantly see that it’s a good thing.
The subtlety unique to wood and the moist feeling of the urushi coating
You can feel it with your skin.
The base is blacked out, but on the outside of the cup is called “ground powder”,
Mix it with raw lacquer and apply something that you want to use for the base of lacquerware on the surface.
It intentionally leaves a mark of the brush, and it makes a rough feeling and enhances the artistry.
Because the mark of the brush is in the part that touches the hand directly, it is possible to feel the lacquer art with the skin.
At the same time, there is also a functional meaning of non-slip.
It is the same as a wooden bowl, and it is difficult to transmit heat to the outside, so even if you put something hot
It is hard to feel hot even if I have it, and it is heat-retaining.
If you put something cold, it is less likely to condensate and has cold resistance.
Compared to ceramics, it is less likely to crack even if dropped, and it is also possible to get injured by the debris.
It is lightweight, hard to crack, has excellent thermal insulation, cold insulation, and is rich in subtlety and artistry.
