awaglass by Norihiko Terayama

By Norihiko Terayama 

Bubbles replace sand in designer Norihiko Terayama’s aptly-named awaglass. Awa – Japanese for “bubbles” – fill the handblown hourglass in various sizes floating upward against gravity distorting perception and time.

Indeed, awaglass doesn’t measure time as one might expect – the bubbles ascend at random intervals. According to Mr. Terayama, it’s purpose is to help free us of time’s unyielding passage and replace it with something more in tune with nature. At home on your desk or workspace, let go of time with awaglass.
