A colorful Nebuta Festival
Lock in the palm of your hand
Even the shadows of light and shadow have been reproduced
The characteristics of Tsugaru Vidro are the soft curves created by traditional air-blowing techniques and the vivid yet calming colors. Today, Tsugaru Vidro's colored glass, which produces over 100 colors, is said to be modeled after natural colors.
The most popular is the "Nebuta" series. This is a glass reproduction of the colors of the Nebuta Festival, which was reached only by the manufacturer in Aomori. For craftsmen born and raised in Aomori, the Nebuta Festival, which is a summer tradition, is special.
The vivid and intricate colors of the lanterns called "Nebuta", which are the protagonists of the festival, capture the hearts of the viewers. That is why I tried to express with glass the various expressions of light and shadow and the momentary colors.
The color of the nebuta is exactly what the nine colored glasses were created by melting and overlapping.
A sake set that allows you to enjoy the colors of the Nebuta Festival in the palm of your hand. It will add a feeling of excitement to the time you enjoy drinking.
Copying the nature of Tsugaru on glass,
Traditional blown glass
Hokuyo Glass Co., Ltd. is a glass manufacturer founded in 1945. Originally, I made floating glass balls for use in the fishing industry. It was the craftsmen's "air blowing" technology that made the floating balls that were durable and boasted the highest production in Japan.
It is a technique to shape the glass wound on a rod by blowing it in the air without using a mold. It is extremely difficult to make a round floating ball by blowing in the air.
However, the craftsmen sought high quality and refined their skills. The technique cultivated in making floating balls has been selected as the first traditional craft of Aomori.
One of the attractions of Tsugaru Vidro is the brightly colored glass that many people cite. While making various products, I was fascinated by the accidentally discovered colored glass making, and now I am making various colored glass that reproduces the natural colors.
What is expressed in the glass is the natural beauty of Tsugaru. Its delicate and vivid colors are now attracting attention from around the world.
