Founded in 1949 in Aomori Prefecture, Hokuyo Glass is now designated for making "Tsugaru Vidro". One of the main features of the Vidro is the "colours with senses of seasonality" created by combining more than 100 colours to create a memorable moment of beautiful scenery.
However, it was not easy for the achievement. In the northernmost part of Honshu, Japan, Aomori Prefecture was geographically disadvantaged due to inconvenient transportation. Therefore, they had no choice but to prepare raw materials such as coloured glasses in-house, which requires a high level of crafting skills. The current "Tsugaru Vidro" is the result of continuous efforts to create new technologies, unique designs, shades, and the combination of old traditions and innovations.
"Tsugaru Vidro" is now known all over the world and has become famous. Even so, the factory is still in Aomori prefecture with the same appearance as before. And in there, the artisans are still manufacturing quality beautiful crafts and innovating new techniques every day.
Hanabi, meaning fireworks in Japanese, is the inspiration behind this series. Colourful dots featuring fireworks delicately represent the fleeting beauty of fireworks decorating the holiday nights.
The chopsticks are made of Japanese natural wood. The top part of the chopsticks is polished to a non-slip effect, making food grabbing easier.
As the whole piece is handmade in Japan, slight irregularities in size, glaze, colour and texture might occur and reflect the nature of the artisan product.
