The

Eternally

Collection

Bridging beautiful past and future essences of mankind, the Eternally collection embraces life, nature and artistry to express of

hidden wonders of the East.

 

Extending identities of Japanese

Edo-Kiriko, cultural art onto metaverse today, we together shape the intricate connectivity of an artistic society of tomorrow.

Technology & Tradition

Yukio, the first generation pioneered some of the earliest of Japan's first electric mechanical grinders, which are still commonly used in the manufacture of Edo-Kiriko today. Maintaining such machinery in prestine condition is only a small portion of our efforts to continue Yukio's inventive spirit beyond.

Tradition reminds us that progressing in a timeless manner may be the only way to build on one's accomplishments from the previous day. Kosho's techniques much surpass conventional workmanship in terms of detail. The narrowest cut on a Luxury model can be as little as 0.3mm wide. Attaining such high precision takes weeks, if not years of unbroken focus. Outlasting his own endurance with each creation, his works illuminate the radiance found only deep within, reflected through the simplest movement of irreversible straight and curved lines.

Treasured Scarcity

With only a dozen authentic craftsmen practicing Edo-Kiriko creation in Japan today, our tradition is undergoing transformation, putting the craft's future inheritance under challenge. The project promotes and emphasizes the importance of cornifying, knowing, and noticing, as well as collaborating as a decentralized Web3 community to engage in global learning, evaluation and appreciation of locally outstanding cultural art and expressions.

 

NGCWorld continue to engrave thousands of years of Japanese aesthetic onto the highest-quality crystal glasses. Our project follows a straightforward historical path of art that connects the eastern and western ethics, cherishing the shared traits and identities of ancestral cultures, in expressive reflection of the most beautiful world we once saw. Edo-Kiriko has been cultivated in Japan since the 1800s, and today we introduce our rare, perfectly shining handmade art to share a new light with the metaverse.
