Expressing the nature of Aomori
Blue and green, wind and mountain glasses
Bright blue and green that reflect the nature of Aomori
The characteristics of Tsugaru Vidro are the soft curves created by traditional air-blowing techniques and the vivid yet calming colors. Currently Tsugaru Vidro's colored glass, which produces over 100 colors, is said to be modeled after natural colors.
The "Aomori" series, which combines bright and warm blue and green, is based on the blue breeze of Aomori and the green mountains. From such a gradation that the deep and deep colors gradually approach each other and melt into one, you can feel the early summer breeze that blows into Aomori. The unique charm of handmade glasses is that each one has a slightly different facial expression and color change.
Give one gem in the world. I want to give a special gift with such luxury.
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.
