Optical Glass


Edo-kiriko is a type of cut glass that developed in the Edo area (now Tokyo) in the Edo Era (1603-1867) and now designated as Japanese Traditional Craft by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry. Although Edo-kiriko was first created by copying cut glass imported from England, ages and ages of disciplined work of craftsmen improved the art of Japanese cut glass. Before cutting glass, craftsmen do no mark the patterns; detailed and thin lines can be cut from years of experience and inherited craftsmanship since they can barely see what they are cutting through translucent colored glass. Skillfully cut glass can be enjoyed also by shining light on them; myriads of colored rays will create a whole new atmosphere on the tabletop.
