Shibuichi Sake Cups by VandaLann Shibuichi Sake Cups by VandaLann
These sake cups are hand fabricated from a shibuichi (25% silver to 75% copper alloy) billet I casted. I depletion guilded them and then sanded some off the hammered surface to show the schibuichi peach color on the outside of each cup.

The cups sit in a cast coper base that is elevated by transparent hand pulled glass rods. The base is found wood with model railroad foliage.

I love how you've used glass stems, the contrast with the metal is awesome! They remind me of industrial modern architecture.
