Guinomi Friendship Cup from Japanese Lacquer Designer KIRIMOTO

Guinomi Friendship Cup from Japanese Lacquer Designer KIRIMOTO
The Wajima Kirimoto friendship cups are the perfect gift for a wedding or a couple's anniversary. A set consists of two cups in different shapes. The larger cup is called anata (貴方), which means "you". The smaller cup is called watashi (私) , which means "me". The set therefore stands for you and me. The large and the small cup are each available in red or black.

Multiple layers of colored lacquer are applied on a core of Japanese zelkova wood, which is known for being very durable. As they get used over time, the cups will become bright and gain luster as we wish for the love of a couple over time.

Description

Details

The Wajima Kirimoto friendship cups are the perfect gift for a wedding or a couple's anniversary. A set consists of two cups in different shapes. The larger cup is called anata (貴方), which means "you". The smaller cup is called watashi (私) , which means "me". The set therefore stands for you and me. The large and the small cup are each available in red or black. Multiple layers of colored lacquer are applied on a core of Japanese zelkova wood, which is known for being very durable. As they get used over time, the cups will become bright and gain luster as we wish for the love of a couple over time.

The famed durability of Wajima lacquer ware is the result of both the high quality of the lacquer refining process and the composition of the undercoatings unique to Wajima. A finely powdered mineral called jinoko is used for the undercoating. This undercoating is much more durable than the rice powder, which is most commonly used to fix the lacquer to the wooden core. The special undercoating and the up to 8 layers of lacquer made Wajima lacquer so durable. Wajima is also famous for its chinkin style colored and metallic decoration called makie.
