Founded in 1949 in Aomori Prefecture(青森県), Hokuyo Glass(北洋硝子) is now designated for making "Tsugaru Vidro/津軽びいどろ". "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.
Using a unique technique called "air-blowing", this luxury piece of sake was handmade without moulds or machines. By adjusting the timing of breath and the speed of turning the glass, artisans created this 'free shape'. This extraordinary skill takes years of experience and learning. In addition, there are multiple layers of glasses applied, which makes this piece more luxurious. A masterpiece indeed!
As the whole piece is handcrafted in Japan, slight irregularities in size, glaze, colour and texture might occur and reflect the nature of the artisan product.
