This espresso cup is made on a potters wheel from solid zelkova wood and by painting on accenting color lacquer one-by-one by hand.
This colored lacquer was created after more than 10 years of research & development by a traditional craftsman. The lovely colors and form make this a popular item, even overseas!
This item was selected as a gift item at a famous Japanese department store.
As this is made with natural wood and lacquer, it is also an environmentally-friendly item which is kind to the earth and people. The lacquer is a natural coating material that doesn't contain any organic solvents for peace of mind.
As wood does not conduct heat easily it won't feel hot in your hands when holding.
