Rare, collectible crystal art of the present

Kosho, in the creation process of Kiriko in his studio

All processes of a "Kiriko" glass production have been done with our own two hands since the first day. Because no steps can be skipped or undone, each cut, grind, and polish requires undivided attention. The cuts made on the crystal glass in this manner are irreversible expressions between human and nature, of the most beautiful stories that I hope to bring for its holder.

The very rare, finest creations meets future with the "Eternally" collection. Never publicly released due to its complexity of design and details of work, We wish these unique pieces each represent and reflect the paths of beautiful, traditional Japanese artistry, leading to the lights ahead.

The Eternally connected future

The Eternally collection is created with the metaverse, art enthusiasts, and communities in mind. The collection begins with releasing two distinct works of digital art, each accompanied by a token of ownership right of the physical Edo-Kiriko glass. In the form of a utility card, the token is an art itself capturing the physical article's characteristics evolves with time. By integrating the two domains, we wish to engage on unforgettable authentic experience, co-developing towards a fuller, artistically connected future.

Kiriko, a prestigious edge of the Eastern glass art culture

Treasured by emperors and generals of the "Edo" period since the early 1800s, the Kiriko cut-glass technique was established among the best craftsmen in Tokyo as a form of art of the era. Cultivating, engraving micrometer details by hand for nearly two centuries, Kiriko carved its grail to become a distinctive Japanese tradition. Today, Nemoto Glass Crafts' creations continue to be entirely handmade, one-of-a-kind modern pieces cherished by the royal families, celebrities, and fine art collectors alike.

With hope of connecting with the authentic art communities and technology of the future, we would like to share an all-new, specially created private collection exclusively for the NFT market to challenge new limits of our expressions, with culture as foundation, and purest objective in art.
