Entirely handblown in Osaka, Japan, Fresco creates reliable and purposeful glass products designed to encourage new relationships between the user and their environment, with the belief that each item will become an extension of the users own expression. Just as water only becomes visible when light reflects on it, so does Fresco glassware, creating an aura in the air by reflecting the light, revealing its true colours, and peacefully making itself known in a given space.
Kasumi means “haze” in Japanese, a fitting name for this line of glassware. The soft, milky colours gently reflect muted light through the plates and bowl, offering a mellow, dream-like quality to your dining experience. Because Fresco’s works are all handmade one by one, there may be variations in colour, shape and size from what is pictured. These differences contribute to the individual personality of each piece, and are meant to be enjoyed.
Since the material is not heat-resistant, please avoid rapid heating and microwave ovens.
Please hand wash. Handle with care and avoid strong physical shocks.
Don’t expose to extreme temperature changes in microwave or dishwasher.
YUMIKO IIHOSHI PORCELAIN
* * *
Yumiko’s concept is to create a design that is on the boundary between handmade and conventionally manufactured products.
After graduating from Kyoto Saga University of Arts, studying a Porcelain major, Yumiko started her own porcelain collection under her own name. She designs and oversees the manufacture of porcelain tableware which combines the use of molds for uniformity, with hand glazing by artisans, to ensure each piece has a sense of individuality. Each ceramic glaze and shape is unique and original, taking inspiration from the functionality and pure sense of a vessel.
“It is not something that every single claim is too apparent. I thought that it would be nice to have warmth in design, but not argue too much.”
The aesthetic forms and unique palettes are infused with a sense of nostalgia, inspiring us to reflect and reminisce about time while using it in our daily lives.
All products are crafted in Japan.
