Renowned Japanese architect Kengo Kuma drew inspiration for the Yakisugi pendant from a technique for preserving construction timber by charring its surface, which is known in Japan as Shou-Sugi-Ban or Yakisugi. This ancient technique uses charred wood as a means to preserve it without the need for paint or sealant, an aspect lending to the current revival of the technique in eco-friendly architecture and design. Adapting this process to a centuries-old glass crafting technique yields a contemporary design unique in every piece of hand-blown glass. Available in two sizes.
