  • the story


Add a side of sophistication to sushi night with this dazzling sake set. Reminiscent of dozens of beads of condensation, flurries of dots enliven the tranquil, fluid forms of the partnered pourer and cups set. Sake is a rice-based alcoholic beverage that comes from Japan. Unlike beer and wine, sake can be sipped chilled, at room temperature, or even hot, depending on the preference of the drinker, the quality of the sake, and the season. So whether you savor your sake chilled, steaming, or somewhere in between, this delightful, dappled set is sure to add personality to every pour. Handmade in CA.
Suitable for both Hot and Cold Sake.

Shiloh Hunkapiller

Shiloh Hunkapiller is a borosilicate glass artist who uses lampworking techniques (the manipulation and blowing of glass with the use of a torch) to create glass art ranging from marbles to vessels. His artwork is simple in color and form, yet elegant. He uses only the finest American borosilicate glass and kiln anneals all finished pieces to remove stress within the glass.

Shiloh began his artistic career as a woodworker specializing in the building of bamboo fly rods. Over the years, he has also acquired a great appreciation for and interest in glass art. Therefore, when he had the opportunity to learn glass blowing from fellow lampworkers he took advantage of it. Shiloh studied the art for approximately two years. Finding that glass blowing came naturally, he chose to pursue it full-time. His prior experience building bamboo fly rods has helped him while lampworking--both require patience and close attention to detail and accuracy. Over time, Shiloh has taken the knowledge taught to him and begun to develop his own unique techniques and style. He is continuously experimenting and pushing both the glass and himself.

A Sake is set is not something that would get used often

Vote: Thumbs down!

pretty but not everyday useful

Vote: Thumbs up!

lovely to look at and delightful that it can be used at multi-temperatures.


This would make nice gift, although I probably wouldn't buy it for myself.

Vote: Thumbs down!

Too expensive and I don't like sake

Vote: Thumbs up!

Very pretty. Love the colors! I like the gold one the best.


I like these very much. Unfortunately, living on limited retirement funds, the cost prohibits my purchase.

Vote: Thumbs down!

Not something that would get used much, pretty though

Vote: Thumbs up!

I like the way it looks but would have to use as water pitcher.

Vote: Thumbs down!

to expensive, but i like that it is dishwasher safe


love that it's handmade, diswasher safe, and it looks gorgeous, but it's just too expensive for an infrequently used item.

Vote: Thumbs up!

Gorgeous design! A lot of people are saying that it will not be used often, but do any of us really use every thing in our cabinets regularly?? It is a nice touch that it can be used with both hot and cold sake!

Vote: Thumbs down!

To be honest, besides the obvious of it not being practical, I don't think it's attractive at all. Maybe I'd use it for something else, but not for that price!

Vote: Thumbs up!

I love this but would not use it as a Sake set since I am not overly fond of Sake. Probably Lemoncello instead.

Vote: Thumbs up!

Love the idea of this....I would use this as everyday glassware as well as for sake...yet would like it to have 4 glasses and not just two


I like it alot - very pretty and more modern and versatile than the traditional sake sets I have looked at. Would be more likely to buy if the cost were lowever, however.

Vote: Thumbs up!

Really pretty set, but expensive. Serving sake with take-out or cook-in Asian meals makes things that much more authentic and special.

Vote: Thumbs up!

I like the silver set but $80 is a bit much for such a small set

Vote: Thumbs down!

I love this sooooo much... Not being a sake drinker, I'd repurpose it for water or wine. Except fro the price. No way I'd pay $80 for this.

Vote: Thumbs up!

looks very cool1

Vote: Thumbs down!

Sake is usually served in much smaller "cups not glasses.

Vote: Thumbs up!


Vote: Thumbs down!

I actually find this set really beautiful. I can't see spending so much on it, however.

Vote: Thumbs down!

Not something that would be used except maybe if you were having a Sushimi party.

Vote: Thumbs up!

expensive, but pretty. There is no rule that says you HAVE to use it for Sake


Like the design and style of this set


Pretty steep price. Could be a nice gift (wedding or corporate or anniversary) for people who enjoy sushi at home.


Don't do sake.
