What is Edo Kiriko glass?

Edo Kiriko started as a technique in the Edo era. Its beauty appeals to people around the world.

Today, Edo Kiriko is famous for its thick-colored second layer of glass that lets Artisans engrave vivid patterns. When it was first developed, the glass was thin and transparent instead of the double-layer most pieces use now.

A different method Satsuma Kiriko was developed to make an official Industry of the Domain, but it was ruined in 1871 because the government attempted to centralize the local authorities.

Edo Kirito became a traditional craft in Tokyo in 1985 and was registered as the manufacturer of Traditional Crafts by the Minister of Economy, Trade, and Industry in 2002.

There are three requirements to be a traditional craft of Tokyo.

  1. The process should be done mainly with 100-year-old techniques.
  2. The materials should be traditional.
  3. There should be four or more companies manufacturing it in Tokyo.

These glasses are a beautiful way to preserve the past and embrace the future.
