Voda Glass (Grey/Tepard)
Reminiscent of antique french glassware, this grey interpretation of the Voda Glass is beautiful in its simplicity. The glass appears almost purple in color from afar, and upon closer inspection, you realize that hundreds of tiny bubbles float within the glass profile. A pleasure to use for water or wine, the tapering shape and thickness allow for a versatile piece that is a true pleasure to use.

Katsuhisa and Mizuho Hira
Named after the concept of preparation, Studio Prepa is a husband and wife-run glass studio located in the mountains of Nagano Prefecture, Japan. Using glassblowing techniques originating in Sweden and Italy, Katsuhisa and Mizuho Hira work collaboratively to make glass objects that are familiar and nostalgic but still original. By embracing the imperfections and unpredictability of glassware, rather than trying to create pieces without variation, they celebrate the details of a product that mass production would never consider. In this way, Studio Prepa imparts a warmth and character in their work that transitions beautifully into daily life.
