This limited edition of 100 cups has been created by a six thousand-year old traditional method, perfected a long time ago, a painstaking covering of wood in the poisonous sap of a specific tree in layers that take months to dry. Åbäke took a residency in Wajima, a town separately famed for its lacquerware and fishing industry that they met the Urushi craftsmen. No less than seven hyper specialised craftsmen work one after the other into the slowest fordist dichotomy the industrialisation forgot.
