Satsuma faceted glass, said to be a phantom of faceted glass

Satsuma faceting was produced in the Satsuma Domain (present-day Kagoshima Prefecture) at the end of the Edo period and was called "phantom faceting" because it was produced for only about 20 years. The technique of Satsuma faceting once ceased to exist, but it was restored about 100 years later, and the technique has been handed down to the present as a traditional craft.

Glass is one of the easiest items of tableware to incorporate into daily life. We recommend that you welcome a glass made by traditional handcrafts as a special tableware.

Beautiful black faceted glass produced by outstanding technique

​​Satsuma faceted glass is made by covering the surface of transparent crystal glass with colored glass at least 1 mm thick, cutting deeply, and polishing. The "blurring" and delicate patterns created by this process are the most distinctive features of Satsuma faceted glass.

The chic black color is used for this beer glass. Satsuma Bidoro Kogei, the company that produces these glasses, succeeded in producing black color for the first time in the industry in 2006. Cutting black glass, which does not allow light to pass through, is an advanced technique that requires many years of experience and intuition. It also takes two to three times longer than usual to produce this elaborate product.

The different cuttings on the top and bottom of the glass give it a very modern look. A beer glass so beautiful that you can't help but admire it, it will become an item that gives a special feeling to your daily life.
