History of Tsugaru Vidro

History

Originally, Tsugaru glass craftsmen were manufacturing colorless transparent floating balls for use in fishery. However, at a certain time in Aomori Prefecture, a craftworker walking along Shichiri Nagahama (coast) where a beautiful sandy beach and lush green nature still remains, takes home a handful of sand and adds it as a raw material for glass Saw. Then, by coincidence, the finished glass gently gave a calm green color. Tsugaru Vidro got to know somehow nostalgic, deeply green like Aomori's nature reflected in Japan as a daily necessity.

Features of Tsugaru Vidro

Characteristic

Features of Tsugaru Vidro are in various colors. Tsugaru Vidro has a manufacturing team called "melting" not found in other glass crafts. The craftmen of melting blend the raw materials based on the color recipe completed by the blending craftsman and melt the glass for coloring. Although there is a recipe, the color development of the glass changes with a subtle change in the natural environment such as weather, temperature and humidity. Therefore, it is also work of dissolving craftworker to manage the temperature of the furnace overnight. Although it says green, it varies from green like youthful leaves to green with calm depth. Tsugaru Vidro is said to be "expressing the four seasons in Japan with glass" also thanks to this delicate coloring technology.
