Inspired by the Tokyo rainy season of mid-Summer, this set of two low tumblers brings the perfect balance between playful and polished to the table.
The satin finish motives echoing raindrops are carved into the glass by hand, following the Edo Kiriko traditional Japanese craft known for its exquisite cut crystal.
The production of each glass comprises 6 delicate and labour-intensive steps, from basic cutting the foundation of the design to the final buff revealing the shine and transparency of the glass.
Horiguchi Kiriko, an Edo Kiriko third generation master craftsman, blends beautiful crystal craftsmanship with everyday utility creating unique designs that produce different visual effects under different light.
The raindrops glass is perfect for mixing with other glassware to create a unique tablescape.
Height 10.5 cm, Ø 7.5 cm
Need to know:
Tōru Horiguchi is the latest in a long line of his family to perfect the art of Edo Kiriko, a traditional intricate multi-layered glass carving technique originating in Tokyo during the Edo period of the early 19th Century.
It was during Japan’s Taishō era that Ichio Horiguchi, Tōru’s grandfather, began his apprenticeship under a master of Edo Kiriko, Kikuichiro Kobayashi, bearing the ’Shūseki’ title. In 2008, as the third master of the Shūseki line, Tōru, established Horiguchi Kiriko as a successor to the traditions of Edo Kiriko.
Today, this tradition is continued by a small team of skilled artisans, using a diamond wheel to cut the glass using rough outlines as a guide. The production of each glass comprises 6 delicate and labour-intensive steps, from basic cutting the foundation of the design to the final buff revealing the shine and transparency of the glass.
