Sayuri Fukuda for Storied Objects
Perfect for holding your jewelry or as a salt cellar, this little jar is a pleasure to the senses. Achieved by applying black-colored powder to layers of clear glass, the thin strip left clear at the base of this acorn-shaped jar gives the appearance of floating above the surface it sits on.

Sayuri Fukuda x Storied Objects
Inspired by nature and landscape, Sayuri Fukudas' work embodies the organic beauty that traditional Japanese glass imbues. Ever since first studying glass art in Japan, Fukuda-san has emphasized the importance of glass as a functional material, using utilitarian forms as a way to connect her products to the life of the end consumer. Constantly influenced by the contrast of light and shadow, her work reflects a joyful spirit that stands out brightly from the grey surroundings of the Pacific Northwest. Outside of offering her own line of glassware, Fukuda-san splits her time working alongside multiple glassblowing and Japanese art communities such as KOBO, a Seattle-based gallery located within the historic Japantown district.
