The Jincup is the pièce de résistance of woodwork artist Jin Akihiro. Indicative of his work, each mug is carefully crafted by hand; each piece is as whimsical and appealing as a work of art. The rim and the interior of the Jincup Urushi are glazed with lacquer, exuding an even more stylish feel. Remarkably light and coated, this mug is also perfect for everyday use. Whether enjoying your drink outdoors, or simply having a cup of your favorite beverage at home, relax, unwind, and delight in the cozy, tactile feel of wood from the Japanese Bay tree, an evergreen native to Japan.
Jin Akihiro is a successful woodwork artist based in Kagoshima, Japan. His design sensibilities center on advancing from lines to curves, and from curves to the surface of an object. The compelling, multi-faceted architecture of his pieces draws people in. Since his earliest days as an artist in 2002, he has continued to excel in a wide range of endeavors such as producing made-to-order furniture, creating original products, designing home and store interiors, and exhibiting installations. With his current design philosophy of “handcrafted product design,” he continues to pursue new forms and shapes that elevate his pieces.
