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.
