Kami Mug
Takahashi Kougei

$68.00 USD
  • Introduction
    I am a Kami mug. I am hand-crafted from the rare Castor Aralia tree so I like to think I’m special. My subtle glow illuminates the grain that makes me truly one-of-a-kind.

     

  • Curator's Notes 

     

    Warm, earthy and natural. These artisanal wooden mugs have a thin, elegant feel with the durability of a wooden vessel. Distinctive on its own or mixed in with everyday wares for a natural touch. 

     

    Kami is a series of wooden drinking vessels and tableware made by master woodworker Takahashi Kougei from Hokkaido, Japan. Each of the pieces in the collection is handcrafted from Sen (castor aralia) trees using highly sophisticated woodturning techniques passed down for generations. The name Kami, means “paper” in Japanese in reference to the thin wall thickness and white tone of the wood. 

     

    Kami Mug was curated by Stevenson Aung
