Edo Kiriko Glass (Bamboo) (S)

Edo Kiriko Glass (Bamboo) (S)


Edo Kiriko is a Japanese cut glass tradition that began production in Edo (now Tokyo) from 1834. Kiriko refers to the craft of cutting intricate patterns onto the multilayered glass using garnet powder. The elaborate patterns are hand cut with precision by artisans using a diamond wheel and only rough outlines as guides. Edo Kiriko was designated a traditional craft of Japan in 2002 and its 200-year tradition continues to be passed down through the contemporary range of Edo Kiriko designs. This range of glassware is ideal for use as sake cups, tableware and ornamental pieces to decorate the home.

The Bamboo series uses the “yoroke” pattern, a series of curved lines which refer to bamboo trees. Like the tall-growing bamboo itself, this commonly used motif is used to symbolize prosperity and purity. Embedded in each handmade glass is an individualised design that is unique to each owner.
