- As glass is transparent, there are many interesting things that can be observed by pouring/putting different things in and from the magical light reflections - from sunrise to sunset, a sunny weather to a rainy day and the change of seasons (e.g. from summer to winter).

Motoharu Ozawa - Jade Round Plates

Motoharu Ozawa

Motoharu Ozawa is a contemporary Japanese ceramic artist whose works are famous for the unique and creative hues which are mostly inspired by the beautifully natural surroundings in his town. Based in Gifu prefecture, the globally well-known city of Japanese pottery, Motoharu Ozawa is dedicated to delivering his colourful ceramic pieces to users, allowing them to immerse themselves into a joyful lifestyle whilst reminding them to re-discover the beauty of mother nature.

Messages from Motoharu Ozawa to our Japanese craft lovers:

"Some people may want to know how I create a variety of unique colours of my works. The fundamental ingredients that I use for my creative hues are sourced and from various types of metal and local clay that is rich in iron."

"There are always endless possibilities in numerous combinations of metal and clay. I found this could be one of the most interesting things of my career that keep myself focus on what I'm passionate about and motivate myself to continue to look for colours that I've never seen. My dream is to see users to curate their dining tables like painting on a canvas by utilising my ceramics in different colours."

"There're some important points that users need to be aware of after they have purchased my works. When you use acidic dish detergent for cleaning ceramics in the Jade colour, there's a possibility of colour changing. Please use neutral and mild dish detergent instead. Also, I highly recommend a few minutes of pre-soaking for Kohiki glazed ceramics before the first use. It might be an extra thing to do but this important step helps prevent oil and food colours from penetrating the layer of the Kohiki glaze. This pre-soaking tip will be a useful protection for the glaze."

Nobuko Soda - Rustic Bubble Small Plates

Nobuko Soda

Before becoming an independent glasswork artist, Nobuko Soda graduated from a bachelor degree of Applied Physics in Japan. In 2006, she decided to quit her office job and to start her journey to explore and create magics using her hands.

The unique style of Nobuko Soda's glass works consists of 3 elements - Bubbles, Rust and Blue. Each alternative collaboration among these 3 elements has its own texture and ambience, and they look very differently. This is the reason why her works are so fascinating and special. The handcrafted glass works that you have never seen elsewhere! 

Characteristics of different series of combinations:

- "Bubbles and Rust" Series: Bubbles are presented in a way that they're dancing freely in a brass texture. This combination also looks like the scattering sparks of "hanabi" (fireworks) surrounding the glass surface. It's a random yet beautiful melting point when chemicals start their harmonious dancing once they have met. The brass bubbles are then captured within the transparent layer of glass when Nobuko Soda stops blowing the glass. These fascinating moments between glass and brass will never appears in the exactly same form again. And, each of these scenes seems to be moving when you hold the works in your hands.

- "Bubbles and Blue" Series: This series is perfect for summer which reminds you the memory of going to the pool or visiting an aquarium. The 3-dimensional texture of bubbles inside the gradational layer of blue glass gives a fresh and cool breeze. They are even better when are used to serve bubbly drinks with a scoop of floating ice-cream during summer.

- "Rust and Blue" Series: Nobuko Soda's unique blue with a metallic and rustic style is created by the chemical reaction of adding brass during production. It's not a merely simple blue colour that you normally see. Each piece of glass objects in this series mimics the movement of water surface with an uneven top glass surface.

Sonoko Matsuda - Hyobon Mint

Sonoko Matsuda (glasswork)

The product concept of Sonoko Matsuda's glass boxes is based on occasions to celebrate and memorise those important and precious moments. Therefore, her signature jewellery glass boxes are named "Toki-no-Hako" (ときの箱) - which means a box to store and treasure a moment. To Sonoko Matsuda, she thinks that the important things include both the times that have passed and that in the future.  

She wishes that users will use her glass boxes to store their important items such as the precious piece of jewellery, a fountain pen, a memorable piece of stone that is collected at the beachside with your loved one, or even just the air. Whenever you gently open the glass box to revisit your nice memory, it's also a beautiful moment in daily life.

The glass technique that Sonoko Matsuda uses is casting glass. The sculpting skill is called sandblasting which she uses to create the delicate flower motifs on the exterior. The hand-sculpted flower motifs interpret flower quotes and meaningful thoughts. From the complicated and time-consuming procedures of production, she wants to express her dream by each piece of thoughtful glass works to help everyone to create and store their special and valuable moments.
