Kiyohide Glass Green Flame Edo Kiriko Cut Glass Guinomi Sake Cup
This is a sake cup designed like flickering flames with a hexagonal base and chrysanthemum-linked patterns on the sides.
It is entirely handcrafted by the traditional craftsman, Kiyohide. The unusual bright green hue of the Edo Kiriko cut glass complements the design, evoking a sense of modernity and individuality within tradition.
Despite the intricate appearance of cutting work, the process is brought to completion by his fluid and smooth motions, honed over decades of training. The meticulous patterns change expressions with lighting, emanating a delicate glow that captivates the viewer, whether under natural light or when illuminated in darkness.
The surface's texture ensures that the glass doesn't easily slip from your grasp, and the round form, combined with the moderate weight, makes it ergonomic.
Made of glass for a smooth drinking experience, it is perfect for slowly savoring chilled sake. This piece embodies the chic and pleasant sake time unique to Edo Kiriko.
It comes with a beautiful box made of paulownia wood, light and suitable for storing the cup in a great condition. Also, it makes them perfect for gift-giving.
This sake cup 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 sake cup 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.
