Hand-blown Glass Tea Bowl "Jupiter" / dia 12.2cm x h 6.5cm
A signed kiri wood box is included with each bowl.

Using the 'Pin-Blow', glass blowing technique, Masaki Kusuda crafts exquisite, gracefully curved bowls, plates and drinking glasses in clear, brilliant glass. Utilizing only the force of gravity and spinning the rod with centrifugal force, his vessels are remarkably simple yet beautifully formed.

Please note that due to the handmade nature, each piece will vary in shape and size, Small bubbles or marks may occur during production. The glass is not heat resistant so is unsuitable for use with hot liquids.
