Accessory made with Ryukyu glass, encapsulating natural elements of Okinawa with its gentle island breeze. Ever transient, the beautiful ocean and forests of Okinawa. We wanted to capture the nature of Okinawa and wrap it gently with its island breeze. “Ryu Kyu Iro” contains nature’s strength and sophistication, and of course, beauty.
There is an old Japanese saying that goes like this, “Water does not spoil in Bizen ware water jugs”. The “hiiro” comes in a modern 2 color design with a plain trimmed shape rarely seen in Bizen ware and its atmosphere will make you feel nature in a simple and refreshing way. “The characteristic of Bizen-yaki (Bizen ware) made in Bizen region, Okayama is found its unglazed natural texture. I was impressed by its functionality; it can make the water tastes milder when stored in it for 24 hours. So I designed a water carafe. I added organic feel to the product by adding small detail like its scratched-like patterns created by mixing gravel with the clay.”
