Edo Kiriko is a type of Japanese glassware that is renowned for its intricate designs and exceptional quality. Handcrafted by skilled artisans, these pieces are both beautiful and functional, making them the perfect addition to any home or collection. In this guide, we’ll explore the history of Edo Kiriko glass and the artistry behind its creation, as well as provide tips for choosing the perfect piece for your home.

The History of Edo Kiriko Glass:

Edo Kiriko is a traditional form of Japanese glassware that dates back to the Edo period (1603-1868). During this time, artisans in Tokyo (formerly known as Edo) developed a technique for cutting and engraving glass to create intricate designs. These designs were inspired by nature, with themes such as cherry blossoms, chrysanthemums, and bamboo being popular motifs.

The process of creating Edo Kiriko glass is both time-consuming and complex. It starts with the selection of high-quality glass, which is then carefully cut and engraved by skilled artisans. The pieces are then polished to a high shine, revealing the intricate designs and enhancing the beauty of the glass.

General Production Process


1. MARKING
Without drawing a design, simple grid lines are marked out on the glass to provide the framework of the design. The design grid is drawn on the glass’s surface using a bamboo stick or brush with red iron oxide. Next, the base lines of the design are lightly etched using a whetstone. Relying on these fine marks and lines, the delicate patterns of Edo kiriko are created with the artisan’s expertise and skills.

2. FIRST CUTS
The base design is cut to about three quarters of the final width and depth. The surface of the glass is cut using a sand paste coated metal disc rotating at high speed. Generally emery powder with many abrasive particles are used to create the sand paste. The clear pattern border lines and the rough patterns are cut little by little. The balance between the thickness and depth of the cut lines relies upon the artisan’s years of experience as there are no detailed sketches.

3. ADJUSTMENTS
The patterns cut in the second stage are adjusted and the surface is smooth polished in this process. A whetstone disc, natural or artificial, is used to cut fine patterns that cannot be created with the metal disc used in the prior process. This is the last cutting stage to complete the patterns so careful work is required to not leave any powder residue and to ensure a brilliant finish.

4. POLISHING
This is the final stage of production and it is usually carried out on soda-lime glass (most prevalent type of glass). The opaque surface left by the third stage is returned once more to its original transparent state, but now with the attractive shine and sparkle so typical of Edo kiriko. For high-class crystal glass, chemical processing with hydrofluoric acid may be applied too. Depending on the piece, a variety of different polishing discs may be used, such as paulownia wood discs, willow wood discs, hair brush discs or belt discs. By applying water and polishing powders, the work is polished to obtain a glittering finish. The particularly fine sections are often polished with a cloth or a brush. To complete the final polishing, a cloth buffing disc is used to bring out the sparkle and shine of the cut glass.
