Kami Lidded Cup
Takahashi Kougei

$70.00 USD
  • Introduction
    I am a Kami Lidded Cup. I’m a really stubborn person so I don’t let my environment get to me. I like warm things to stay warm and cold things to remain cold.


  • Curator's Notes 


    I’ve always loved the feeling of drinking from a wooden vessel, especially when they are impeccably crafted. The wide cups are carved to approximately a 2mm wall thickness, so they naturally have a delicate dimension and feel lightweight. The lid doubles as a coaster. We also like to use the cup as a container for small objects and snacks. Perfect for a little injection of nature into your life! 


    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.
