Moheim’s Yuki Glass designed by Shigeichiro Takeuchi, exemplifies the Aburidashi technique of Hirota Glass, a prestigious glassware company established in 1899 in Tokyo. The skilled artisans meticulously handcraft each glassware using this technique, which was highly popular during the Taisho period. However, due to its complexity, this method has become increasingly rare in modern times, with only a select few antique glassware shops offering items made using it.
The Aburidashi Technique is distinct from other glassmaking techniques because of its use of “Bone Ash” in the raw material. This substance possesses unique properties that enable the creation of opalescent colors during the glass heating and cooling process at the time of molding. This sudden temperature change gives rise to a variety of artistic patterns in the glass, making the Aburidashi Technique highly sought-after among glassmakers and collectors alike. Therefore, Moheim’s Yuki Glass is not only beautiful but also a remarkable example of the Aburidashi technique’s excellence in glassware production.
