Shaped to increase the impression of aromatic flavour, this wineglass is based on Japanese table styling, the stem removed. Beautifully suited to wine and cuisine, it also has a casual feel that can lend to broader uses. The wooden box makes these glasses special again.
The remarkable Usuhari Glasses are carefully hand made by master craftsmen. With 50 years experience of making glassware, Mr. Katagiri heads the process. They are born of the same techniques as making light bulbs. Appearing beautifully delicate, you'll be amazed how fine the rim is, but they can be handled with usual care of glassware (although not dishwasher safe).
Well received abroad already, Usuhari picked up the "Accent On Design Best Product Award", at The New York International Gift Fair held in August 2003.
