Feel the beauty of the falling cherry blossoms
Reflecting Japanese sensibility on colored glass
Reflected the color of the petals
Various colored glass
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 beautiful red and pink colored glass "flower raft" expresses the petals of cherry blossoms floating on the surface of the water. The Japanese sensibility to feel the beauty of the cherry blossom petals that have been blown by the wind is beautifully expressed on the glass.
If you pour sake next, you will instantly see the scenery of cherry blossoms floating on the water. The delicate colors that cannot be said to be red or pink 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 of cherry blossom viewing all year round.
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.
