Edo Kiriko Shimizu Glass Fuyou Rock Glass
Edo Kiriko is the cut glass style of Tokyo. In its traditional world of small workshops, the Shimizu Glass company is unique in several respects. Firstly it is led by a woman, Michiyo Shimizu. The team that Shimizu has built in her workshop has a balance of tremendous experience (the lead craftsman has been working sixty years in the field), and opportunities for young people seeking to renew the tradition.
Shimizu Glass is known more than anything for the quality of its production, with these glass designs a good example.
Inspired by the shapes of the Fuyou flower when blown in the wind, the cut on the base is intricate and expressive.
Available here in Royal Blue and Green, the production run is very limited.
