Edo Kiriko Kai (Kaku)

Edo Kiriko Kai (Kaku)


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 Kai series features a range of traditional Edo Kiriko patterns combined with modern form. These sake cups are produced using a traditional technique that involves hand blowing the glass. This series comes in three different designs, all of which are polished with varying results from lustrous to a matte finish.

Kakudashi “角だし” is a traditional pattern that is crafted with a matte finish.
