Reflecting Mutsu Bay in the midwinter
A glass that expresses the nature of Aomori
Reflecting the nature of Aomori,
Bright blue and green
The characteristics of Tsugaru Vidro are the soft curves created by traditional air-blowing techniques and the vivid yet calming colors. CurrentlyTsugaru Vidro's colored glass, which produces over 100 colors, is said to be modeled after natural colors.
The "Mutsu Bay" series, which expresses the sea in the midwinter with dancing curves and deeply clear blue, conveys the mystery of original colored glass, with different shades of blue such as the glass part and pedestal fascinating.
The blue sea of winter, where the waves swell violently, is projected on the surface of the glass. One of the charms of handmade products is that the round patterns and curves that look like drops are different one by one.
I would like to find my own Mutsu Bay while considering the color of the things that are poured inside.
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.
