These Sake Cups Look Like There’s a Tiny Galaxy Inside Them When Liquid Is Poured In

Galaxy Sake Cups by Sansaku

If you’re a fan of Japanese sake and outer space, chances are you’ll love these galaxy-inspired sake cups. Sold by Sansaku, each simple vessel looks like it contains a swirling, sparkling night sky when it’s filled with liquid, allowing you to hold your own, tiny Milky Way in your hands.

The 宙COCORO collection is handcrafted by Hiromi Sato, a traditional craftsman from Niigata in northwestern Japan. Each sake cup is made from stainless steel, then hand-glazed with oxidizing, iridescent lacquer, and dusted with gold powder. Because every one of them is hand-painted, they are each a one-of-a-kind cup, and reveal different glittering galaxies when filled with liquid.

Unsurprisingly, the beautiful 宙COCORO sake cups are currently sold out online, but keep an eye on the Sansaku website for news of a restock.
