A Cover For Your Cream Puff

Call us old fashioned, but we like to cover our food in glass vessels.  Perhaps we had too many unfortunate endings with saran-wrap, near severed fingers or just tangled up in the ghastly stuff...either way.. we can't go near it.

Imagine our giddy gasp of glee when we saw this:

We are smitten for Switch Design's Glass Food Covers that are made for distinct types of treats: onigiri (rice ball), shu cream (cream puff), and a slice of delicious looking strawberry cream cake.  We love the preciousness of these individualized Glass domes, they make the treat that much more special and beautiful.

The vessels were designed by Hiromi Taki and Tomonori Ohata of Switch Design, and hand-blown by Sayaka Kanazu, who is a glass artist living in Toyama.  They were part of the Oyatsu Dougu Exhibition in 2010.
