Edo kiriko is a traditional Japanese art form that has a history of over 300 years. Yoshiro Kobayashi is a third-generation kiriko artisan who grew up around the kiriko workshop.
Kobayashi directs his attention to every detail, and some kiriko pieces require over a month to produce. As glass products are now mass produced, interest in this extraordinary glass art has declined drastically.
Kiriko are useful and gorgeous to look at; the minute cuts and fine details that go into each glass piece culminate into a one of a kind artistic wonder. Own your own Edo kiriko, made by Yoshiro Kobayashi.
