Lavender Kiriko Glass

by Kimiko Yasuda

Yasuda was honored with an award for this glass, which she calls the Wave Flower Cup. The cuts on the side of the glass are relatively simple, but when viewed from the top, the side cuts act as mirrors to enhance the chrysanthemum design on the bottom like a kaleidoscope.

About Kimiko Yasuda

Kimiko Yasuda is a star in the world of kiriko, the cut glass technique which is an ancient tradition first developed in the seventeenth century. In the making of kiriko, crystal glass, known for its shininess, is handblown into molds. An artisan blows a thin layer of colored glass into the mold and then a clear glass layer so that the layers attach. When it is cooled,  Kimiko begins the kiriko cut glass process, making detailed cuts by hand which reveal different layers of color. Finally she polishes the glass by hand for a shiny, sharp finish, resulting in jewel-like glass that sparkles and radiates with colored light.
