Muromachi Glass Art
Edo Kiriko Cut Glass: Kougiku Kinaka Cup
Edo Kiriko is a traditional Japanese art of cut glass that originated in Tokyo toward the end of the Edo Period, characterized by colorful gut designs. The name kougiku combines the characters for "light" and "chrysanthemum", inspired by the way the light shines through the petal-like design.
This item was made by Kei Hosokoji who belongs to Glass Studio Saiho and is a certified Japanese Traditional Craftsman.
Like all Edo Kiriko glassware, it is as much a work of art as it is a piece of tableware. This design is also available in blue, "Kougiku Ruri".
