yozakura sake set captures the essence of cherry blossoms

夜桜 yozakura (literally translating as night sakura) is a japanese tradition of enjoying the beauty of the sakura (cherry blossom) at night by gathering under lighted trees to celebrate nature’s beauty and the arrival of spring with delicious sake and food. philadelphia-based french visual artist kennedy james has modeled this collection of tableware after the flower, and this ritual, with an open blossom inside the pentagon cup, and the drop-shaped carafe’s opening in the form of a petal. the yozakura silver sake set is handmade from porcelain cast from a mold. the gold and silver cups are decorated with food safe luster. the carafe holds 375 ml, while the cups hold 20 ml of sake.
