Artisan Sake Gift Box
Ceramist Max Sobel
Sommelier Bryan Lamorena

Whether new to sake or a rice wine expert, our frame artisans have curated a truly next-level sake box. Tag a local ceramicist and frame’s sommelier to combine their deep passions. And wow, look what we have.

By day, local ceramicist Max Sobel is an engineer; an art form in its own right. Max utilizes this extensive working knowledge to elevate his ceramic practice onto an entirely new level. While he may consider himself to merely moonlight as an artist, after seeing Max’s beautiful practice and workflow, we’d have to disagree. Max’s sake cup designs are indeed one of a kind. Aside from the wildly intricate, delicate work required to craft the clay, Max employs distinct glazing and soda firing practices to make his work stand out from the rest.

And to pair: hand selected by our in-house sommelier, ‘Ama No To’ Tokubetsu Junmai Sake, hailing from the northernmost tip of Japan in Akita. Brewed in a farm to glass production wherein all the sake makers are also rice growers ~  you’re sure to be sipping pure and clean this season.

Call us crazy. But there’s nothing we like more than a hand crafted gift born out of true passion. Cheers!

“Tried out frame as part of the ‘grandma’s basement series’ with Chef James (Mabel Gray) and Chef John (Grey Ghost). Our Italian Family Dinner was delicious! Enjoyed every course (which kept coming). Best meatballs I’ve ever had!! Love the idea of home Cookin with a little flare, shared Family style with strangers. A wonderful evening!”

What are people saying?

Mark Kurlyandchik, Detroit Free Press

“The vibe at the Frame dinners also reflected the personalities of the chefs, who were able to interact with guests and offer stories about their food memories while cooking rustic dishes without the same expectations that come with their respective restaurants. The food was predictably great and unpretentious, but the series also highlighted the growing importance of personality and storytelling to the modern dining experience.”
