Juu-nin to-iro (article about glass from Japan)
« on: January 12, 2006, 12:33:11 PM »
Inspired by Tony H's bowl that has the words MADE IN JAPAN moulded on it, I have written an article (Juu-nin to-iro ). You can see it here

http://www.geocities.com/carni_glass_uk_2000/Japan.html

or you can access it via my Home Page (link below).

Please email me if you find any mistakes etc.

Della, Anne, Frank and Connie - my sincere thanks for your kind words.

I understand that Mike (Butchiedog) has developed an interest in glass made in Japan, too. I am looking forward to hearing more about his discoveries.

Hi Kasi - great to see you here  :lol:

Thanks for your kind comment, and yes, they certainly do make some amazing glass. I have to admit that when I started looking into the Japanese production I didn't know quite what to expect. But having delved into it, and scoured some of those websites, I was stunned to see the beauty of some of that glass being made now.

Glen

PS I love your sign-off comment. I took it as an instruction and dashed off to grab a chunk of chocolate right away. I'm feeling better already!  :lol:

Fab article Glen!  Oddly I was tempted to bid on an Edo Kiriko Japanese cut glass decorative cup this week.  I'm just not certain about Oriental glass yet though, and your article helped...thanks.   :D
