This series by Karai revives glass-making techniques from Japan’s Edo and Taisho periods to reproduce the famous moonstone opalescent glass that was popular at the time. The elegant flower bud shape of the glasses is created using traditional techniques. Even with the same shape, the different materials, techniques, and colors used impart each piece with a different sensibility. The elegant, graceful styling, alongwith the variation of translucent and transparent glass, harks back to classic Japanese glass manufacturing.
