Expressing the nature of Aomori
Beautiful snow world glass
A feeling for nature created
Expression of snow
The characteristics of Tsugaru Vidro are the soft curves created by traditional air-blowing techniques and the vivid yet calming colors. Currently 100It is said that Tsugaru Vidro's colored glass, which produces colors that exceed the above, is modeled on the colors of nature.
"Hakkoda Zarame Snow", in which bright blue and transparent glass look like a snowy landscape on a sunny day, is a series that expresses the feelings for nature unique to Aomori, which has a lot of snow.
At one point, the manufacturing method was cut off, but the craftsmen revived it after trial and error. Transparent glass grains are melted on the surface of the glass, large snowflakes fly, and the trees are covered with ice to represent the winter of Mt. Hakkoda.
One of the charms of handmade products is that each one has a different expression, such as how to enter the blue colored glass and the rough snow. I want to enjoy the charm of winter in Aomori while enjoying the cool snowflakes that touch the palm of my hand.
Copying the nature of Tsugaru on glass,
Traditional blown glass
Hokuyo Glass Co., Ltd. is a glass manufacturer founded in 1949. 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.
