The first Edo Kiriko, or Japanese traditional cut glass, originating to the Edo period, is believed to have been made by Kyubei Kagaya, a master glass craftsman in Odenma-cho, Edo or old Tokyo in the late Edo period. (The Edo period is a period of Japanese history, running from 1603 to 1868.) Edo Kiriko was created and nurtured by the townsmen of Edo. Since then, for over 180 years, its excellent designs and finest techniques have been handed down to generations of Kiriko craftsmen.
Edo Kiriko is highly reputed for the most exquisite and delicate cutting, and designated by the Japanese government as the traditional craftwork. It is very popular both in Japan and abroad as a gift symbolizing Japanese culture.

This is a process of pulling out stem part of a wine glass from a shaped crystal glass at the end of a blowpipe.
A range of grinding wheels are used to engrave delicate, geometric patterns on the surface of glassware. This is how Edo Kiriko is made.
This is a technique known as “copper-wheel engraving”. A basic design drawn on the glass surface is cut with a copper-wheel rotating on a spindle. Fine abrasive emery sand powder mixed with oil is applied to the edge of the wheel.
