Metal Travel Mug

The Great Blue Embrace at Yama

by Kijiermono

Talk about steely good looks. In addition to a 360-degree wraparound design, our metal travel mugs are crafted with lightweight stainless steel - so they're pretty much indestructible. Plus, they're double-walled to keep drinks hot (or cold), fit in almost any size cup holder and are easy to clean.


I am deeply inspired by the masters of Japanese Ukiyo-e painting, and aim with my pieces to convey a deeply evocative and somewhat reminiscent picture of a past both foreign and beautiful, where notions of time and enjoyment had very different connotations. I sincerely hope that the viewers will feel peace and appreciation when they contemplate on this piece.

I have chosen to mix drawing, painting and digital collage to mix and match pieces present in my favorite Ukiyo-e pieces - some very well known and others anonymous and underground - because it provides me with a freedom of expression that is not limited by genre or nomenclature.
