List of Japanese glass makers
« on: January 19, 2007, 02:08:18 PM »
The following might help in trying to ID glass that is otherwise unknown. Compiled with the help from Glen's excellent article:
 http://www.geocities.com/carni_glass_uk_2000/Japan.html

The Ryukyu Village
Combines many different workshops and is based on one of the southern islands - the Murano of Japan, perhaps? :D
Ryukyu - http://www.wonder-okinawa.jp/009/english/index.html
 (in japanese)      - http://www.ryukyu-glass.co.jp/
 (in japanese)      - http://www.ryukyu-glass.co.jp/shop/index.html

The last link does show various examples of the glassware produced.

Under the Ryukyu banner are the following workshops:
Edo
Maeda Glass Factory
Okuhara Glass Factory
Machinato Glass Factory
Ryukyu Glass Factory
Kokusai Glass Craft, Inc.
Oyafuso Folk Craft Glass
Okinawa Kotobuki Glass Craft Inc.
Giyaman Kan

-------------------------------

Other factories:

Toyo Sasaki Glass - www.toyo.sasaki.co.jp/e/
Hario - http://www.hario.jp/ (this is a new address - updated as at July 2013)
Kagami - http://www.kagami.jp/
Toyo Sasaki - http://www.toyo.sasaki.co.jp/e/index.htm
Soga Glass - http://www.sogaglass.co.jp/en/

Probably not complete, but can always be added to.

Three other makers of art glass - very Murano style for lots of their outpot - but the quality is always excellent.  Here are four examples from my own collection that are labelled or I have seen a duplicate that has been labelled.
 -  Kamei
 -  Hineri
 -  Handcraft

I came across a maker I'd not heard of before this evening -
Kurata Craft Glass
according to this site Stanislav Žampach spent a short  time there in  1994 and 2001

and I found this vase with a label on (ebay listing so it will disappear in time unfortunately)
