  • These glasses are made near the lake Tokurako in Obanazawa, Yamagata, Japan. This glass studio is located in Japanese "snow country" in the North - in winter when you look outside, it's all silvery-white snow outside, and nothing else is visible.  The summers are bright and very hot. This beautifully rich scenery, and the surrounding nature, inspire the craftsman. Ito-san hopes to reflect this nature and the kind, thoughtful people of the area in his art pieces, while preserving the "snow silver" pattern technique, for which he is known, in his hand-blown glass.

    This paperweight demonstrates Ito-san's skill set as a hand blown glassmaker. The glass shows such realistic texture in this oyster shape and design. It can be used as a paperweight, but also simply as a unique art piece for display.

    *These glass pieces are NOT dishwasher safe.
