A Glass to Feel the Ripples from Waves

This glass was made to resemble the sparkling surface of the ocean glittering on an early summer day.

Niijima glass is produced on the Pacific island of Niijima, located 99 miles south of Tokyo. It is characterized by its natural olive green color. This green color comes from the Koga stone, which is found in only two places in the world: Lipari Island in Italy and Niijima Island in Japan.Made from 100% koga stone, Niijima glass is the only pure volcanic stone glass in the world. 

The gentle bumps that represent the ripples of ocean waves - known as sazanami in Japanese - will give you a sense of comfort every time you touch them. Feel the winds of the shore in your daily life with this special glass.

Osamu Noda

Osamu Noda is a glass artist born in Niijima. He studied glass art in Japan and the U.S. and has received numerous awards for his work.
After extensively researching, he developed Niijima glass—made by melting an entire koga stone—and established the Niijima Glass Art Center in 1987.
In addition to the development of Niijima glass, his activities have been important for cultural innovations and the revitalization of local communities, such as business, tourism, and education.
He also organizes the Niijima International Glass Art Festival, which has a history spanning over 30 years.
Every year at the festival, he invites artists from abroad and conducts workshops and lectures to teach the next generation of artists from Japan and around the world.
He also holds classes when he is invited abroad. Although his works are archived all over the world, he also operates his own glass art museum in Niijima.
This energetic and active artist works daily to create narrative forms inspired by his handiwork and Niijima's natural environment.
