Lacquered Mug

Max Lamb x Akira Sugimura

This is a lacquer replica of an old military issue enamel mug where lacquer replaces the enamel coating and the form of the mug is turned and carved by hand in wood, rather than spun steel. In fact the Lacquered Mug bears many similarities both functionally and materially to the enamel mug from which it is copied. Due to the age of the enamel mug the steel has been spun by hand on a lathe, just as the lacquered mug is carved by a wood turner’s hand.
