The Awaglass by Norihiko Terayama of Japan-based Studio Note is a striking hourglass creation that replaces traditional sand with soapy water. Working just like a classic hourglass, it simply drips down bubbles instead of grains of sand. A beautifully simple substitution, it requires a good shake before using it so that the soapy water inside becomes as bubbly as possible.
The shape of the Awaglass by Norihiko Terayama is sleek and rounded, as though trying to mimic the bubbles it carries within its belly. Walkers Video created two mesmerizing films (one short and the other long) that shows exactly what this hourglass is capable of. A calming and serene experience, people will wonder why it wasn't created sooner.
