Kiyohide Glass Black Edo Kiriko Rocks Glass
With this meticulously handcrafted rocks glass, each sip will instantly transport you to a world of timeless style that puts its own spin on tradition. As each glass is made by hand, they may look similarly stunning, but no two are exactly the same.
The intricate network of lines and starburst shapes create a delicate texture that wraps around the exterior, but when it’s in your hand, you’ll be impressed with the weighty handfeel that belies its incredible quality.
The striking black lip invites attention, and the carefully placed cut lines stand out against the black diagonal stripes. Black is often considered the most challenging hue to carve in Edo Kiriko. The intricacy arises from the method of cutting kiriko glass, which involves inspecting the interior while referencing the pattern etched on the glass's exterior. Unfortunately, this pattern remains invisible when the glass is black. Achieving this delicate balance demands years of expertise, a refined sensibility, and impeccable technique.
Finished with a black pattern along the bottom, it’s an elegant style that looks truly at home with your finest table setting, yet also delivers a commanding presence when sitting solo next to your favorite chair.
Holding up to 200ml or 6.8 ounces of your favorite drink, it’s the right size for whatever is on the menu, and the subtle hues of the stripes and contrasting bottom instantly elevate the visual of the cocktail, mocktail, or any other liquid inside. It arrives tucked with a beautiful box made of paulownia wood, light and made to protect the cup when not in use. It also makes a beautiful gift.
This glass is made with a craft technique called Edo Kiriko, which involves the precise cutting of crystal against a cutting wheel, to create geometric shapes and lines that catch the light from every angle. Each Edo Kiriko glass is made by hand by the artisan Kiyohide in his workshop called Kirameki, which means “The Refined Light”. Kiyohide has honed his craft over decades of dedication, earning him the title of “Edo Kiriko Craftsperson”, an honor reserved only for those who have proved their craftsmanship of the technique.
