The Embodiment of Japanese Culture - Edo Kiriko - A Red-and-White Pair of Sake Glasses

A unique set of glasses born of a combination of the west’s traditional crystal glass and Japan’s traditional facets. This pair of glasses has the motif of “Mizuhiki” which represents the connections made between people. A combination of the traditional “rough fence of bamboo” and “family crest shaped as a hemp leaf” have been combined and engraved into these glasses using the traditional edo kiriko technique. The crystal glass’ transparency beautifully brings attention to the sake’s refined color. Created by master artisans using carefully selected materials, they have a refined design and hold a high level of transparency, with their most characteristic feature being their tone and shine. These Japanese-made glasses, with their Japanese design, can be used in your home, but are also perfect as a gift for friends or family.

    Precise Edo Kiriko “Mizuhiki” Cuts That are Used in Celebration

    Precise Edo Kiriko “Mizuhiki” Cuts That are Used in Celebration

    These sake glasses made from crystal glass have been cut to perfection. This method of cutting the glass creates an end product that displays the beauty of the crystal glass, and is recognized as the main processing technology in the field. KAGAMI’s cut glass, which boasts a high refractive index, allows for a design that displays its deep, precise cuts as well as a pure and refined tone loved across Japan. The Red-and-White Pair of Sake Glasses "Yui" is a set of glasses that use the Edo Kiriko cutting technique to express Japan’s traditional “Mizuhiki” design. “Mizuhiki” was apparently a social custom in the past where you would wrap red and white hemp cord around items for presentation. This set of glasses uses this traditional Edo Kiriko cutting method to depict a combination of the traditional “rough fence of bamboo” and “family crest shaped as a hemp leaf” on this pair of glasses. The set is put into and delivered in a beautiful wooden box.
