Satsuma Kiriko

  

This is cut glass which is called Satsuma Kiriko.

It was started in 1846 by the Shimazu family.

But it’s technology went downhill around 1877 because of war.

And it started again since 1985.

I visited a factory.

I think the craftsman’s art is wonderful.

Satsuma Kiriko has beautiful colors and exquisite cut-work.
