What is fresco, a brand by glasswork craftsman Takeshi Tsujino?

The air is invisible. But there are things we can see over the air.
We can feel the air by seeing it.
We can notice the presence of light when it hit an object. The reflecting light leap to our eyes.
We can see colors. It is because the light is converted into colors.
By fresco

Fresco aims to create a glassware which shows light, brings air, and makes us realize the presence of invisible things.

Fresco was established by a popular glasswork craftsman Takeshi Tsujino. On the foundation of Mr. Tsujino’s record of glasswork, he started his own studio in Izumi city of Osaka prefecture. In 2005, he started his own brand.
