The evolution of Edo Kiriko is all thanks to Satsuma! Modern cut glass born in Osaka!
Takumi Kiriko attempts to create a trend that is directed toward a future of kiriko while making full use of revived traditional Satsuma Kiriko techniques. The soul of Takumi Kiriko is the finely-honed sensibilities and outstanding artisanal skills of Takumi Takahashi, a kiriko master craftsman with 50 years experience. He was also involved in working on the reproduction of Satsuma Kiriko works that once existed. At Takumi Studio, glass is meticulously hand-polished using wood boards and cork. Polishing by hand, as opposed too acid polishing by dissolving the glass surface with chemicals, creates sharp edges and enhanced shine.

[What is Kiriko?]
Kiriko is the Japanese name for the craft of cut glass (glass with a pattern engraved on its surface). Edo Kiriko and Satsuma Kiriko are the names of kinds of traditional glass crafts in Japan. In the Edo period, cut glass was brought to Osaka by way of Nagasaki, and then blossomed in Edo as Edo Kiriko. After this, the Satsuma clan became involved in working on kiriko glass as a clan business, and Satsuma Kiriko was born. Backed up by uniquely Japanese sensibility, Satsuma Kiriko boasted advanced techniques and beauty but, in the midst of the upheaval at the end of the Tokugawa shogunate period, it was discontinued after only a short time. However, at the end of the 20th century it was once again reconsidered and then reproduced by a leading authority in the field of glass crafts, reviving this beautiful looking craft.
