A water vessel made from handblown glass. This is a representation of the concept of “senseware” by “KORAI”. It is named after the Greek word "Hydrangea" which means water vessel. This senseware allows us to feel the wind and the light in our daily living similar to the water bowl which is often placed in a Japanese garden. By filling the vessel with water and setting it by the window, it reflects wavering water ripples on the surface it sits on and creates a pleasant time in tune with the change of nature.
Designed by Shizuka Tatsuno
Made by Takeyoshi Mitsui
Made in Toyama Prefecture, Japan
Wares that trigger human sensitivity and open the doors to new senses. We call this “senseware”. It is our desire to introduce a novel way to feel the presence of wind, water and light, through craft products. Our senseware which we had accomplished takes the form of a cool looking art piece that will breathe new life into our daily living which goes with the flow of nature’s constant change.

Lives and Works: Japan
“KORAI” is a brand of Japanese craft which is dedicated to cities around the world. It is produced by HULS, a company which supports overseas business of Japanese crafts. This brand is aimed at conveying through craft products across Japan, the beautiful form and texture of these crafts and to express the harmony such as between “inside and outside” or “nature and home” which prevails in the Japanese culture.
Like the “engawa” (veranda) in Japanese-style houses, which brings coolness of nature into the home, we believe this same concept will bring comfort to the mind and body of people who live in restless cities.
Based on this concept of “Ryo” which means coolness from nature, “KORAI” delivers a cool and comfortable time to the city life.
