KORAI 水の器 – Hydrangea

A water vessel made from handblown glass. This is a representation of the concept of “senseware” by “KORAI”. It is named after the Greek word which means water vessel. This senseware allows us to feel the wind and the light in our daily living similar to the water bowl which is often placed in a Japanese garden. By filling the vessel with water and setting it by the window, it reflects wavering water ripples on the surface it sits on and creates a pleasant time in tune with the change of nature.

Wares that trigger human sensitivity and open the doors to new senses. We call this “senseware”. It
is our desire to introduce a novel way to feel the presence of wind, water and light, through craft
products. Our senseware which we had accomplished takes the form of a cool looking art piece that
will breathe new life into our daily living which goes with the flow of nature’s constant change.
