This is the first glass work by Ryu Okubo, an artist active in Japan and abroad with a focus on illustration and animation. Based on his line drawings and sketches, the glass artisans created each piece by hand.

SAPPY COUPLE" is a set of two of his iconic characters, one with his tongue sticking out and the other in the form of a light bulb. Each piece is made by blowing the hot glass through a hollow rod to give it form.

The curves and humorous expression are delightful, and this object has a universal appeal that will not fade over time.
