Reflecting Japanese sensibility on colored glass
A variety of colored glass that reflects the color of the petals
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.
"Hydrangea" with beautiful various blue and green colored glass expresses hydrangea that gets wet in the rain. During the rainy season, in the rain that tends to be dark, the sensibility of Japan, where you can feel the beauty of the hydrangea that blooms brightly, is beautifully expressed on the glass.
Sake Next, if you pour sake, you will see a hedge of hydrangea that drips after the rain.
The delicate colors that cannot be said to be blue or green in a word are the aesthetic sense of Japan that has loved nature and moved its heart. By transferring the co-starring of water and nature to glass, it will produce a time to enjoy the atmosphere even in the rainy season.
Traditional air-blown glass that reflects the nature of Tsugaru on 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.
