YAKUSH founded by Masha Yakush in 2017

Masha Yakush is a visionary and founder of YAKUSH. Having a deep passion for restaurant culture, Masha decided to use her extensive experience in restaurant consulting to create a brand that would diversify tableware.

The story of YAKUSH began with Masha's passion for restaurant culture. She noticed that while many restaurants serve unique and delicious food, the tableware they use is often banal and uninspiring. She saw an opportunity to improve the overall experience of not only going to a restaurant, but also the opportunity to create that unique experience and enjoyment of the objects around us in our own homes.

With this vision in mind, Masha embarked on a journey to create her own line of tableware and decor. She has spent countless hours researching and experimenting with different materials, shapes and designs, drawing inspiration from traveling around the world and visiting museums featuring ancient artifacts and antique tableware.


Blown glass products are the main direction of the YAKUSH brand. Our manufacturing site is located in Lviv (Ukraine). Blown glass is unique because the objects are made by free blowing. Blown (Guta) comes from the German word hutte – guta-a glass-blowing workshop. This unique technology was invented in Ukraine in the 15th century. A molten ball is being blown out through the tube. It is being corrected with wooden bars, tongs. The result is taken off the tube and placed on an iron rod ("pontius") and the processing is being continued. If necessary, a master opens the top or rolls out the lower part, pulls, bends, cuts viscous glass with the help of special tools. Also, before creating an object from blown (guta) glass, we remelt the broken glass (we take it from factories that are no longer functioning) and, thus, give a new life to the shards.
