What is Edo Glass

It is a handmade glass product that inherits the glass manufacturing method that was born in the Edo period.It is said that manufacturing of mirrors and eyeglasses started in the early 18th century, and in the early Meiji era, the introduction of European technology made it possible to meet diverse needs and developed as a local industry in Tokyo.Unlike mass-produced products made by machines, Edo glass has one original item for all products, and is characterized by the depth, taste, and high design that can be produced because it is handmade.After melting glass that has been melted at a high temperature of about 1,400 degrees with an iron rod, we use various techniques such as “blowing,” “pushing,” and “extending” to shape various vessels."Edo Glass" was designated as a Tokyo traditional craft in 2002 (Heisei 14) and as a national traditional craft by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry in 2014 (Heisei 26).
