Ceramic and the Ginsai design make for delicious sake and a luxurious time. Repeated trials were performed in pursuit of an ideal flat sake cup.
A flat sake cup that fits well into the hands with a thin smart edge, a reasonable sense of weight for easy holding and moderate depth. In a shape that is agreeable for those who like sake and those who are just starting out.
In a spatial design with pure silver leaf used in the overglaze and in a transparent, glossy, "Kutani 5 color" light purple color.

Special-order 100% purity silver leaf foliated to a thinness of 2 microns (2 thousands of a millimeter) are attached one by one to each item, then it is put into a kiln and polished so that the fired silver leaf becomes smooth. On top of this, beautiful and transparent "Kutani 5 color glass glaze" is applied.
These Ginsai items require a great deal of effort and skill to make, such as putting in a kiln more than 4 times until they are complete. These are items with combined transparency and beautiful coloration that add extra quality to dishes and drinks.
The modest spatial beauty of the silver leaf thinness and cut surface are carefully created totally by the hands of craftsmen. As this is very delicate work, the thickness of each individual silver leaf varies slightly, meaning that a feature of Kutani Nagomigama's Ginsai items is that no two are ever the same.

Kutaniyaki's beautifully colored transparent glass glaze is sprayed on, so that it covers the attached silver foil that has been consciously suitably spatially placed, and then it is fired. The silver leaf has various appearances, depending on the angle that you view it from.
The base materials is ceramic that has been hand-sculpted. A sake cup that has been made in pursuit of quality and easy drinking.
