Layer Water Glass
BY Haruya Hiroshima
Criss-crossed in an elegant diamond and star pattern of hand-cut lines, the Layer Water Glass is part of Japanese artisan Haruya Hiroshima’s sparkling, celebratory Layer glassware collection. The collection design is inspired by the traditional, ancient Japanese pattern of woven nets, which has connotations of connection and catching happiness. Hiroshima graduated from Toyama City Institute of Glass Art in 2003 and has since been creating his own line of glassware, hand-cutting and polishing each piece to create glasses that glow with perfection.
