Fresco Nebbia Glass – Grey
Made in Japan
Φ10 x H11cm (Φ4″ x H4.33″) / 400mL
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.
The word “Nebbia” means “fog” in Italian, and this is reflected in the smoky colouring used in this line. The slow gradient of light on top to dark on the bottom adds a sense of grounding to the delicate round shape of the glass, which is pleasant to hold in the hand. Not only can this glass be used for wine and other drinks, but is also perfect to serve various desserts in; like ice cream, gelato, parfait, and smoothies.
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 microwave ovens and dishwashers.
Please hand wash. Handle with care and avoid strong physical shocks.
Don’t expose to extreme temperature changes in microwave or dishwasher.

After more than 20 years of experience in glass industrial art, the brand Fresco was launched in 2005 by Takeshi Tsujino.
Placing an importance on the combination of Tsujino’s credibility with the uniqueness and originality of handblown glassware, Fresco creates reliable and purposeful glass products designed to encourage new relationships between the user and their environment.
The name “fresco” means “fresh” in Italian. The theme of fresco is “to coexist the ‘reliability’ of brand and ‘originality’ as handmade crafts.” Fresco treasures the relationship of people through the glassware.
All products are crafted entirely by hand in Osaka, Japan, with the belief that each item will become an extension of the users own expression. Such diligent handling of materials is motivated by the possibilities of what glass can offer to our modern living environments and how it can unite and harmonize with the space around it.
Just as water only becomes visible when light reflects on it, so does Fresco glassware create an aura in the air by reflecting the light, revealing its true colours, and peacefully making itself known in a given space.
