As strange as it sounds, the glass craftsmen of Sugahara believe that glass is alive, and they can converse with glass.  "While glass is in a red hot glowing liquid form, there is a moment that the glass becomes most beautiful" as one of the glass makers claim, and they do not miss that moment to blown into an object.  In other word, the craftsmen listen to the 'voice' of glass carefully and maximize the capabilities of glass, and bring out the smoothest surface and distinctive shine.  You sure will notice the difference when you hold their products in hand.  It is why Sugahara believes in handmade.
