The Toho cup was handmade in Gifu, Japan in a small workshop. The wax is and poured by us in our Sydney studio. The result is a long lasting, premium soy wax candle that is designed to be used for your matcha or miso afterwards.



Earlier this year we were lucky enough to visit Japan again. While we were there we got to meet a new kiln in Gifu, where they create small batches of pottery. We designed three beautiful cups and glazes in collaboration with this workshop - we even got to see the huge kiln open right after it was fired. 
Each cup is designed to be your matcha bowl after it's burnt.

Ingredients & Craft

Located in Surry Hills, Sydney, is our studio where we pour all our candles by hand. Using pure soy wax and boutique fragrances. Each of our candles are designed to be used past their burn time as they are all Japanese cups.
Simply remove the wick, wash with hot soapy water and you can drink tea from it, or bring it back to the store for a $15 refill.

Gifu is a city in central Japan. Gifu Castle overlooks the city from atop Mt. Kinka. A cable car connects the castle to Gifu Park at the foot of the mountain. Within the park, the Nawa Insect Museum displays thousands of butterflies and beetles. Kawaramachi Street is lined with traditional wood-latticed craft shops.
