What is Ryukyu glass:
It was started from recycled glass which was wasted by stationed U.S. troops under the lack of resources after WWII. Okinawa glass, or Ryukyu glass is characterized by its chubby thickness. Bottled bubbles like soda has refreshing atmosphere. Colorful glassware seems to reflect the nature of Okinawa.
The glassware is being improved through intensive research and development, expansion of its variety of uses and the introduction of new materials to create unique designs and colors. Although it is relatively thick and unevenly formed, Ryukyu glassware is eminently practical, while mainland glass is evenly shaped but not practical for daily use. The vivid colors and unique designs are popular with tourists.
