This handmade crinkled glass was designed by Makoto Komatsu, whose works have been collected by museums such as MoMA and V&A. Komatsu describes the "Crinkle/Crumple" series as the most important work of his career. The series was inspired by random paper impressions he noticed on plaster moulds used for the mass production of ceramics.

Description

Due to the handmade nature, there may be slight variations in the appearance of each glass, including tiny bubbles and stretch marks. These are natural variations from glass blowing and are not a sign of imperfection, but a sign of beauty.
