Entranced by the sound of hammering

This sake cup has a rounded shape with a fine hammered pattern and lightly dancing polka dots. The thinly finished copper texture is cool and pleasant to the lips. This is a piece created by a skilled artisan using an array of different tools to finish a single sheet of copper plate, raising and planishing it, the sound of the hammer ringing out tens of thousands of times. It will continue to count time with its users for a long time to come.
