≪Product Concept and Features≫

Extensively used in the Meiji and Taisho period, Taisho Roman Glass is a type of milky white glassware made using a unique Japanese molding method. Special ingredients are added to the glass, with the sudden temperature difference coloring it a milky white hue. These artisanal glass pieces are made using a method that is born from the precise patterns of the mold and the skill of the well-trained craftsmen. An opaque white (opal) coloring appears on top of the transparent glass, giving the piece a feeling of sentimentality.Made using a unique Japanese glass blowing method passed down from the Meiji and Taisho periods, this item can only be produced through the skills of the most well-trained craftsmen.

 

 

≪Recommended use of the product≫

A cool, small dish great for arranging ice cream, sherbet, mint leaves, or appetizers alongside a chilled iced tea in the summer.

≪Product Concept and Features≫

A well-trained Edo Kiriko artisan places a pattern onto the normal-shaped cup, taking into consideration the beauty of the piece. The cup is covered in light patterns from the base all the way to the edges. The light refraction varies dramatically depending on the angle. Placing it adjacent to a window or under the light allows one to gaze at the patterns and grow lost in their intricacies. Covering the cup, the petri dish-shaped lid is cleanly cut, despite the pattern continuing uninterrupted.Line patterns are hand drawn onto the red-stained glass. Following that, the product undergoes a uniform cutting process. After cutting, the glass is polished several times over, producing a glossy sheen. The work involved in this Edo Kiriko & Futachoko (Edo Period Glass Cutting & Small Cups) process is performed manually, piece by piece.

 

 

 

≪Recommended use of the product≫

Use as a glass for soba broth, sake, desserts, snacks, and more. The lid can also serve as a small dish for serving spirits.

≪Product Concept and Features≫

A Kirihako is a small jewelry box combining artisanship and chicness.
Utilizing delicate Edo Kiriko expressionism, the kirihako’s transparent glass is covered with colored glass, and the amount that can be produced is limited as each piece is cut with a pattern and finished through manual polishing. Drawing inspiration from the petri dish, this product has a modern and unique form, and is truly a special gem since it’s produced from an original mold.Each piece is made by hand using traditional glass cutting techniques performed by well-trained Hirota Glass craftsmen in the workshops of the Kinshicho neighborhood in Tokyo, which has been the center of such work since the Meiji period.

Whether used as a dish for sweets or for placing accessories into, this dish adds a gorgeous touch of traditional beauty to contemporary spaces.
