Sugaraha Matte Black Ice Bucket

Regular price $148 Unit price  per 

Description:
Elegant black ice bucket. Each bucket is entirely mouth-blown by skilled Japanese glassblowers, and will vary slightly in shape. The rich, deep black of this bucket was created by mixing many different colors of glass - the glass itself is black, rather than a black coating. This distinct, minimalist piece is a stylish accompaniment to your crisp, cool drinking experience. 

Variation:
Each bucket is mouth-blown and unique so there will always be variation in the shape.

History: 
Based in Chiba, Japan - Sugahara Glassworks Inc. was started by Kazuma Sugahara almost a century ago in 1932. At its start, Sugahara Glassworks was run by only a single glassblower. Now they produce over 4,000 beautifully designed glass pieces with 40 glassblowers for global distribution. Sugahara glassworks are truly world-renowned, largely in part to the company's practice of having their glassblowers also act as their lead designers behind their collections - a rarity in the glass-works world. Sugahara values the vast knowledge of their glassblowers, and they rely on this experience and knowledge to create glass products that draw out the true essence, beauty and versatility of glass for all of us to enjoy.
