What are the seasonal colors of Japan? Spring has the cherry blossom, summer has festival colors, autumn has colored leaves and winter has a snowy landscape.
Items which have the abundant colors from the 4 seasons of Japan put into glass. Thousands of many fine colors are created with this in mind.
These Tsugaru Vidro items are born from the burning world of a 1500 degree bright red melting pot.
Glass that has been wrapped around a blowing iron is used to create individual items that have a characteristic hand-made gentle shape thanks to the skilled techniques and craftsmanship of Tsugaru artisans.
Using the characteristic seasonal colors of Japan in a variety of combinations, a limitless appearance, like that of shifting scenery, is created in these Tsugaru Vidro items.
These colorful Tsugaru Vidro items add gentle presence to fun meal times and relaxing moments.
Through the technique of "free-blowing", which has been passed down since ancient times, the Tsugaru Vidro workshop creates items with a characteristically gentle hand-made shape and beautiful coloration.
This series captures Tsugaru's stunning seasonal landscapes inheriting the spirit of legendary craftsmen, Kaoru Okawa and Minoru Akimura.
Hana Akari means that, when cherry blossom is in full bloom, you can feel its brightness even at night time.
Glass colored in pink etc is repeatedly layered to create a three-dimensional effect. It is then luxuriously decorated with gold leaf to create a beautiful cherry blossom scene.
