Glossy blown glass
Popular "rainbow color" Series

"Hizen Bidoro", which is designated as an important intangible cultural property of Saga Prefecture, began to be made around the end of the Edo period.
The air-blown glass, which is made by breathing in human breath without using a mold, is characterized by its smooth luster and soft curves.

"Rainbow color" is a popular series among Hizen Bidoro.
By arranging 5 colors of red, yellow, blue, purple and light blue, a faint and fantastic rainbow color is expressed.
A mechanism that complicates the reflection of light and increases the brilliance by finishing the surface with gentle unevenness.
The small bubbles at the bottom of the glass are also one of the lovely points.

The "drop-shaped glass", which is especially popular in the "rainbow color" series, looks like a wine glass due to its slightly squeezed mouth. It keeps the scent of the drink.
The size that fits comfortably in the hands of women is also a nice point.
It is also recommended as a gift for anniversaries such as birthdays and weddings.

Communicating the advancedness of the Meiji era,
The only glass studio

The history of Hizen Bidoro begins with the refining method established by Nabeshima Naomasa, a teenager of the Saga Nabeshima Domain.
The refining method is what we now call RIKEN, where we were conducting research on Western science and technology such as cannon casting.
The craftsmen in the workshop, which were made to make glass products such as beakers and flasks, started making glass for lamps in the castle after the refining method was exhausted. Says.

One such workshop is Soejima Glass.
While other glass workshops are out of business, we can create glass products that meet the needs of the times by coloring transparent glass and adding patterns that utilize our own technology. I have continued to make it by hand by craftsmen.

President Soejima Glass says that "preserving and strengthening tradition" is to incorporate modern sensibilities and new techniques while inheriting traditional techniques. valve.
That thought will bring to us the gem of Hizen Bidoro, which continues to change vividly.
