Guinomi - Sake Cup

Regular price $ 25.00

Guinomi is a drinking vessel large enough to hold sake that can be drunk in a few gulps. "Gui" is onomatopoeia for gulping and "nomi" means drinking. 

These beautiful guinomi are made in a small seaside town in Kanazawa. The maker adds a little bit of beach sand to his clay, which results in a beautifully rustic texture. Each cup shows a unique glaze pattern that is reminiscent of light in the ocean or starry night sky.
