Kurikyu Odate Bentwood Ring-cups

The bentwood work cups are of exceptional beauty by adding a colored wood ring to the simple design of each cup. The colored ring adds an accent to each cup and it allows each family member to have "my cup". 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.
