Japanese Sake Cup | Simulated Bento Box Stitch Pottery | Hagi Heisei Period

As an introduction to this pottery technique, bento boxes which are made from thinly shaved perfectly straight wood are held together with pegs or fashioned joints. This Sake cup simulates this age old construction with the thin pottery pieces overlapping and held together with buttons/dowels representing the joint, or union of the two sides, (see image of the bento box inspiration). The foot is wonderfully fashioned to celebrate the piece having a warm grey color graze. Condition: Excellent. Incised Impression on the bottom. Dimensions: 2-1/8”dia. x 2-1/8”h.
