Japanese Glassware in Summer Hues from the Primary Essentials

June 26, 2018

New from Brooklyn-based shop The Primary Essentials: glassware in amber, olive green, and mauve from Japanese maker Studio Fresco. Based in Osaka, Japan, longtime glass artist Takeshi Tsujino founded the brand in 2005 to make homewares that blend his contemporary stylings with the natural imperfections inherent in mouth-blown glass. The artist and his studio team make each plate, bowl, and vase by hand, and a summery selection is currently on offer at the Primary Essentials (in two NYC locations and online).

Above: Fresco’s Large Kasumi Plate in pink-inflected purple can be used either as a plate or a shallow bowl; it measures 11.75 inches around and is 1.5 inches deep; $140 each.
Since each piece is mouth-blown glass, imperfections are expected and no two are exactly alike.
