Korean Ceramics, Sip Slowly
[KwangJuyo] Korean Bell Cups - Soju Ware (2p)
Yes, every household has a few cheap shot glasses sitting idly in a cupboard.
But today, we present Korean ceramic ware for serving soju or other traditional liquors like bokbunja (복분자) or baekseju (백세주) - great for ambiance, a touch of Korea!
These are handmade pieces from Kwangjuyo.
Founded in 1963, Kawngjuyo was the first to successfully commercialize traditional-style Korean ceramics and bring it to the masses.
During Japanese Occupation, Korea was in a recession and many porcelain artisans & operations disbanded. After Liberation, Kwangjuyo’s founder - Master Cho Sosu - pursued his vision to re-gather the nation’s best ceramic artisans. They would setup operations in Gwangju to revive traditional-style Korean porcelain making.
The group was successful and became the first to commercialize traditional-style Korean ceramics.
Kwangjuyo uses its own proprietary clay, made from a blend of premium sentiments from across Korea. The clay is aged for months to prevent cracking during the glazing process (more info in the video).
Today we introduce their Signature Bell Soju Cups.
These serving cups are masterfully made - with a beautiful glaze in Korean colors!
But what makes these cups special is their jingle!
There is a trinket that is locked at the base of the cup - which makes a small tinkering sound when the cup is moved.
A little something that only adds to a lively soju-filled night!
Note: These cups can hold more volume than a soju shot glass (about 1.5x more liquid). Great for serving other types of Korean liquors like bokbunja or baekseju.
Each box includes 2 pieces.
Available in 4 colors: Joseon Green, Creamy Ivory, Snow White, Smoky Chestnut
These cups are beautiful! When I'm not drinking from them I put them on my buffet because I like to look at them :). The sound of the bell is also very pleasing.
