Title: Juu-nin to-iro (article about glass from Japan)
Post by: Glen 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

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
