Edo-kiriko is a glasswork technique popularized in Toyko in the past century. It embodies the rich culture of the Japanese working class. The main features of Edo-kiriko glasswork are transparent textures and vivid colors. Achieving any one of these characteristics alone is relatively easy. However, creating both translucent and vivid glasswork requires decades of experience. Edo-kiriko glassware is elegant and straightforward. Common patterns include scales, weaves, hemp leaves, and chrysanthemums. This set is decorated in a classic two-sided yarai pattern - a fence-like pattern comprising bamboo and wood. This pattern represents good fortune.
