We have always deeply appreciated the beauty and versatility of glass. The complex properties of glass and blowing techniques never cease to amaze and challenge us. As tea enthusiasts, the innate joy of watching the leaves unfurl and reveal their true nature in a glass vessel is incomparable. Torimoto Glass, located in the mountainside of Kyoto, creates rare tempered glass teaware that is hand-blown instead of made from a mold. The clarity, organic shapes, and reflections of light in their glassware are truly breathtaking. Torimoto's glassware is soft to the touch with texture yet sturdy, making it a marvel to behold.
