Shotoku Glass Company began manufacturing light bulbs in 1922. Inspired by the engineering and design of their light bulbs, the company went on to develop a line of glassware, well-known in Japan today as "Usuhari". And just like a light bulb, this paper-thin glass is as light as air.
Master craftsmen still hand-blow these glasses today, meticulously crafting fine glass tableware. A single spoke rises elegantly from the bottom of this cup.
