[Edo Glass]
Edo Glass is a handmade traditional craft that began in the Edo Period in the Edo Region (present-day Tokyo). Glass is melted at a high temperature in a crucible and then wound on a blowing iron, where it is blown and shaped into a variety of forms by skilled craftsmen. It is a technique which has been kept alive in the region for many generations. These craftsmen use traditional methods passed on from the Edo period to create painstakingly hand-crafted class wares with classic appeal that continues to this day in modern Tokyo.
