Structure - Tumbler
When you go to a café on a street corner, a waiter serves a small glass of water. The appearance of glasses stacked in a corner of the counter next to a water pitcher is perhaps a familiar, nostalgic scene for those living in Japan. These glasses are mostly mass produced by automated machines. Machine-made glasses are characterized by the presence of partition lines generated from a divided mould, as well as the round rim. Here, we thought about making mould-blown glasses by hand. What we wanted to achieve was mould-blown glasses with a smooth texture on the surface and a delicate look to the rim while remaining functional and beautiful.
The challenge was how we could make the edge at the switching line between the top and bottom part as sharp as possible. After removing the glass from the furnace, it cools and hardens quickly. The viscosity of glass blown in a mould increases before reaching the internal corners, which causes the glass to harden in a rounded shape. To resolve this, we added our own ingenuity to the mould and adjusted the speed and intensity of blowing through a trial-and-error process. In this way, we finally completed a simple yet elegant glass combining the functionality of stackable glasses perfect for daily use and the special characteristics of offering an excellent touch to the lips along with a thin, lightweight design unique to mould-blown glass.

The word "glass" collectively refers to a wide variety of differently manufactured products, for example gently-curving mold-blown glass, thin and lightweight bowls and wine glass stems requiring a high level of skills. Their simple, neat appearance brings high-quality glamor to the table.
Our glassware is not heat resistant and may break when exposed to sudden temperature changes. Do not pour hot drinks into them. Please also avoid pouring cold drinks into your glassware items right after washing them with warm water. We recommend that you avoid washing them in the dishwasher, as hot or high pressure water may cause glassware damage or cloudiness, depending on the type of detergent. Our glassware is not microwave-safe or oven-safe. Be careful not to stack your glassware items unless they are of a stackable type, as stacking may cause glassware to become stuck and break. Layer a cloth or paper between the items if you need to stack them.
Please be careful not to allow small children to touch thin glass products directly with their mouths.
