The glass was first made in Japan in the Edo period.
Colored glass that has two colors of glass, such as transparent inside and blue outside, was founded by Kinmura Nakamura, the predecessor of “Nakakin Glass General” in Edogawa-ku, Tokyo. A technique called the Pokan method.
It is loved widely as a craft by creating a pattern by shaving the outer color. Mr. Nakamura, a craftsman who inherited the technique, made a glass with the science fiction cartoon character "Atom" by Osamu Tezuka who was described as a Japanese god of manga.
Expressing the calmness of Atom and being loved by human beings together with the view of the universe using the amber color that is the origin of Edo Glass. Please relax with Atom with a gentle personality. Each item is a handmade gem.
