Exquisite Entsunagi Edo Kiriko

The captivating history of Edo Kiriko Glass, a traditional craft can trace its roots back to the vibrant city of Edo, now modern-day Tokyo. This exquisite art form experienced a distinctive metamorphosis during the late 19th century, intertwining with the cutting-edge techniques of European glass. The fusion of these influences birthed Edo Kiriko, creating a glassware style that reflects both traditional Japanese craftsmanship and international innovation.

The saga of Edo Kiriko reached a significant milestone in 2002 when the Japanese government bestowed upon it the prestigious title of National Traditional Craft. A testament to its cultural significance, this recognition is reserved exclusively for artisans and producers who adhere to the time-honored techniques cultivated during the 19th century.
