Kanpai!

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

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.
