Every time I reach for this glass it makes me happy.
It’s an esthetically pleasing object that nestles into my hand in the most wonderful way.
I like the other glasses in the set too.
They were a housewarming gift when we moved in here fifteen years ago, and they’ve given me pleasure every day. I use them for juice, for wine, for a simple glass of water. I recently asked the friends who gave them to us where they’d purchased them – and discovered that these Hirota glasses from Japan have been made for more than a hundred years. Founded in 1899, the Hirota Company aims to preserve the traditional art of Japanese glass making. Hold a glass in your hand, and you’ll understand why this tradition is worth preserving.
And while you’re on the Sara site, take a look at the other beautiful objects they sell. It’s a beautifully curated collection.
