Introducing a masterpiece of art transformed into an everyday luxury – the Katsushika Hokusai-inspired Edo Kiriko glass by Yamada Glass Works. Born in Sumida, the very town our workshop calls home, Hokusai's iconic "Rainstorm Beneath the Summit" finds new life in our carefully crafted glass. Their studio specializes in the Hana-kiriko technique, delicately grinding frosted glass with the same tools used for Edo faceting, a tradition that distinguishes us by its avoidance of glass polishing.

This glass, a homage to Hokusai and the artistic heritage of Sumida, is more than just a vessel for your favorite beverage – it's an immersive experience. Take a moment to revel in the stunning interplay of lights through the intricacies of the Hana-kiriko design, allowing you to sip, savor, and celebrate the fusion of art and utility in every delightful moment.

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.
