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. Nakamura-san, a craftsman who inherited the technique, created a tumbler with the "Atom" sci-fi character of Osamu Tezuka who was described as a Japanese manga god.
The color is blue, which expresses a transparent universe, and Atom expresses the existence that is liked by humans with a gentle standing figure. Please relax with Atom with a gentle feeling. Each item is a handmade gem.
