The ”Utakata” series captures the expression of countless glass bubbles, resembling the crystallized bubbles. The name "Utakata" translates to "fleeting" or "transient" in Japanese. These transparent and soft blue vessels evoke a scene reminiscent of snow piling up and blue peonies gracefully melting within the glass, as if these pieces capture such fleeting moments in crystalline form. While this container quietly graces any display, it also possesses a captivating quality, drawing people in with its allure.
