Crafted for Lexus: One Kiln’s coffee set

Yusuke Kido of the One Kiln Ceramics studio in Kagoshima, Japan, is known for his creative use of materials, a fact that is reflected in this unique coffee set, consisting of a dripper, stand and individual cups.

One Kiln

The set is handmade from clay drawn from the Amakusa islands, off the west coast of Kyushu, and is the same soil used in high-grade Japanese porcelain. After moulding, two types of glaze are applied. Bright yellow, blue or green glaze is used for the inside of the cups, each shade custom-made for this Crafted for Lexus edition; and a signature grey-black glaze is applied to the exterior, created using ash from the active Sakurajima volcano, near where Kido-san was born and raised. The minerals within this exterior glaze alter when fired, producing a distinctive aged metallic effect that is unique to each piece.

Simple, functional and designed for everyday use, One Kiln’s stylish Crafted for Lexus coffee set will no doubt enhance your morning wake-up ritual. The coffee is brewed by filling a regular paper filter with your preferred ground beans, inserting it into the dripper and gently pouring hot water over the top. The infusion then slowly drips into the receptacle underneath, ready for savouring.

Components: coffee dripper, dripper stand, cup (yellow, blue or green)
