Kami Japanese Kalopanax Wooden Cup
£55.00

Kami means paper in Japanese and is the name given to a series of vessels developed by Oji Masanori with the uncommonly skilled woodturners of Takahashi Kougei, and was chosen as a reflection of the unique thinness and lightness of their hand turned forms. The regular grain is that of Kalopanax — the prickly castor oil tree — a cold hardy deciduous tree native to Hokkaido. Cut from local forests the timber is seasoned through many cold Asahikawa winters ensuring its stability both for working and a lifetime of use. Whilst some sympathetic handling is advised (dishwashers and long soaks avoided, and towel rather than air drying advised) this mug is impregnated and sealed with a specially developed urethane ceramic mix, making it suitable for use with both hot and cold liquids, as well as ordinary sink washing up. Measures about 85mm diameter, height 78mm.
