Edo faceting has a proud history of more than 170 years. It is said to have originated in the Tempo period, when a glass merchant named Kyubei Kagaya began to carve the surface of glass with Kongo sand. There are several designs in the Edo faceted glass pattern, and this Ken-Yarai rock glass emphasizes the sharpness of a slender sword. The traditional craft of Edo faceting is preserved by a small number of artisans.
There are several designs in the Edo faceted glass pattern, but this Ken-Yarai rock glass emphasizes the sharpness of the razor-sharp sword. The design is created through the delicate and steady work of hand-applying the pattern one by one to transparent or color-covered glass. It is the work of skilled craftsmanship and perseverance, which cannot be done with a distracted mind.
At present, the traditional craft of Edo faceting is being maintained by only a few artisans who preserve its traditions and techniques. The elegant and proud atmosphere that overflows from the work is a sign of the spirit and elegance of the craftsmen who love Edo faceting.
