About Edo Glass:
The distinguishing aspect of Edo-kiriko is the smoothness of the cuts. Take a closer look, and you can see that the edges are all rounded. Crafted by skilled craftsmen, each glass is carefully made and has a deep taste and warmth that cannot be found anywhere else. Along with a wooden box.
It is said to have originated in 1834 in EDO, when glass cutters started using emery sand to cut patterns on a transparent glass surface. In the Meiji period, cutters learned from Englishman Emanuel Hauptmann and Edo Kiriko techniques evolved, soon establishing Edo Kiriko's traditional methodology. There are more than a dozen Edo Kiriko patterns, they all share simple but sophisticated aesthetics.
