The glass depicts humpback whales, whale sharks and other sea creatures swimming majestically in the seas of Ryukyuan.

Air bubbles, characteristic of Ryukyuan glass, correspond to the mysterious underwater atmosphere. The wavy texture of shibori glass creates a wave effect, and the color gradation from light blue to dark blue is reminiscent of the beautiful colors of the ocean.

The design of the creatures swimming happily in the sea is created by sandblasting, a technique in which sand is blown onto glass at high pressure to create detailed patterns.

As the glasses are handcrafted by artisans, the gradation of the colors, the subtle variation in the depth of the patterns, the size and the arrangement of the air bubbles will vary from one glass to another. Each is unique.
