Deep Faceted Bowl

by Yuki Osako


Kanazawa-based Japanese artisan Yuki Osako is known for making functional works of art from glass. Her methods of frosting and cutting the glass make her works totally unique, not only beautiful on the eye but also to hold in the hand.

This particular piece is a bowl in which the glass has been faceted. Yuki has slightly frosted the glass to make the cuts more prominent. The frosting gradually fades towards the rim of the bowl where it becomes clear, this makes for a striking shape that's both light in weight and considered.
