About Hirota Glass
Founded in 1899, Hirota Glass is a top-class collective of glass art specialists, much of the designs inspired by glass art from the pre-war period.

About Aburidashi Craft
The “aburidashi” technique is an old-world technique that had once been a lost art, and was able to be resurrected by Hirota Glass through trial and error. Aburidashi technique was a widespread glass art during the Meiji period (1868~1912), and Taisho period (1912~1926), hence the name ‘Taisho-Roman’. 

The technique involves the use of “‘bone ash” to create an opalescent pattern at the time of glass molding.
