Sake Ware

酒器

Japanese sake, nihonshu, is a fermented beverage made from rice. We have curated a range of beautifully crafted sake ware to help you enjoy and explore the many varieties of this versatile drink. Enjoy the aromatic flavours of Daiginjo sake in a glass vessel or use earthenware and porcelain vessels which are considered ideal for Junmai sake. A small sake cup, ochoko, is often preferred when enjoying sake that has a dry or rich flavour and its larger, deeper counterpart is referred to as a guinomi. A selection of sake is also available in The Shop.

Gold sake set
by Murakami Yaku

Gold katakuchi £382.80
Gold sake cup £176.40

These katakuchi (a spouted vessel for serving sake) and sake cup have been created by Murakami Yaku, who has been one of the most popular potters in Japan for more than a decade. Murakami uses the tebineri (hand-building) technique rather than a potter’s wheel, which gives his pieces a special warmth and a sophisticated air. His works are simple and modern representations of the Japanese wabi-sabi aesthetic.
