The Deformed Polygon Glass (Asymmetrical/Irregular polygon glass containers)

This original glass piece is blown as thin as an eggshell using a method called Edo Glassing and was created in 2013 by Yoshinuma Glass Co., Ltd., an Asakusa glass maker established in 1916. Although thin glass making is well known around the world, most of those thin glass products are clear and colorless. This Deformed Polygon Glass has a colored bottom, giving water in the glass the unique appearance of also being colored. Also owing to its polygonal asymmetrical shape, its beauty is reminiscent of a natural crystal: delicate but at the same time giving off a sense of warmth and freshness. It comes in a variety of sizes and colors and in addition to its use as a drinking glass it also makes a great fashionable item for any interior.
