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.
Each piece is mouth-blown so there will be bubbles and lines inside the glass that are part of its character and appearance. There will be some variation in shape due to its handmade nature.
