This Odate Bentwood work consisting of a sake pot and 5 sake cups is the perfect gift for any sake lover.
The cups are a combination of Japanese traditional craft techniques and contemporary design. The beauty of the sake pot comes from the simplicity of its design, the natural grain of the cedar wood and the dark cherry bark used to fix the ends of the bentwood sheets to each other. The pot is very elegant and very comfortable when pouring sake into the cups.
The sake cups and the sake pot both received the "Good Design Award".
Japanese Odate Bentwood work is made of Japanese cedar cut into very thin slices. The wood is cooked in boiling water until it becomes flexible so that it can be bended into various shapes. The end pieces of the bentwood are fixed together with dark cherry bark, which not only makes a nice dark accent on the light wood but also creates a durable and natural bond.
Kurikyu Bentwood is known for its high quality Bentwood work typical for the city of Odate in northern Japan. The company is run by Shunji Kurimori who represents the sixth generation of proprietors. He received many awards for his craft and also exhibited in many countries outside of Japan.
