The Sake Bomb. A Modern Drinking Vessel Inspired By The Puffer Fish

What better eay to get bombed on sake than with the hand crafted ceramic microwaveable Sake Bomb, a modern sputnick looking vessel with four incoporated sake cups that can hold hot or cold sake.

The Sake Bomb is hand crafted in Los Angeles. It is available in a variety of vivid colors with a sealed matt ceramic finish. To ensure the complexity and geometric nature of the sake bomb remained true, the manufacturing process combines both high-tech modern technologies with traditional handcrafted techniques. The vessels were initially design in 3D CAD software and printed using a 3D FDM printer. From these objects plaster molds were taken and traditional slip-casting procedures are employed to create the ceramic versions for kiln firing.

This whimsical pouring vessel is a comical take on the western slang “Sake Bomb”. The inspiration is a juxtaposition of the Fugu Fish (Blowfish or Puffer Fish), the most opulent of sashimi cuts and a WW II sea mine. The small drinking cups perch neatly on the spines making it a compact entertaining tool.

The Sake Bomb was designed by Alexander Purcell founder of APRRO an interdisciplinary design studio based in Los Angeles.

Available in four colors:

Because the Sake Bomb is ceramic it keeps both your hot sake hot and your cold sake cold. To heat sake you may place Sake Bomb in microwave for a minute. Sake Bomb holds 8 FL OZ (235 ml)
