During that time, they have made millions of glasses with offers and requests. They will continue as the major glassware company in Tokyo in developing and creating new aspects of glass in their downtown factories, while working with craftsmen, designers and creators. Edo Kirico is a glass craft that has been handed down in Tokyo. Edo Kirico was fostered in the urban culture among the townspeople, and during the Meiji era (mid-19th century), the craft introduced not only Western equipment and instruments, but also their technique while preserving traditional techniques and has been passed down to the present time.

【FD STYLE (SANSAKU) 】

The SANSAKU is a cup created specifically for the enjoyment of sake. It comes in three different styles, designed to accentuate and amplify the aroma, texture, flavor, and aftertaste of sake. Because, sake can be enjoyed at a wide range of temperatures, we have carefully spun single sheets of stainless steel using our specially designed mold and spatula, creating a vessel that can control how heat is transmitted to the mouth. Everyone has their own sense of taste, and preferences can change according to mood, physical condition and the social environment. The SANSAKU lets us enjoy our sake at different temperatures and occasion-perhaps you will be pleasantly surprised by a new flavor experience in your usual sake.

イベント参加体験談(小松聡子さま)

体験談小松聡子さん

ニューヨークに在住でJapanese artist pop-up shopのイベントにご参加いただいた の小松聡子さまにのご紹介と体験談をお話いただきました。


ジュエリーデザイナーの小松聡子です。

大阪生まれ大阪育ちですが、6年前に宝石製造卸の会社を退職、ジュエリーデザインのスキルアップのためにNYに来たことをきっかけに自分のブランドを立ち上げ、今はNYを拠点に活動しています。

イベントでは実際にお客様の声や、その方達の身につけている物を知ることができるので、そこから次に何を作ろうか、次はどんな見せ方にしようかとアイデアを得られます。

それまではアメリカではネットショップのみの販売だったので、最初は在庫の確保とディスプレイ等を揃えるのが大変でした。他のクリエイターマーケットに行って他の方のブースデザインを見たり、気になったディスプレイはどこで買ったのかと直接聞いたりもしました。

今後はもっといろんなイベントに参加して活動の幅を広げたいと思っています。

ニューヨークは刺激的な街です。そして何事も始めるのに遅すぎるなんてことはないよ、と背中を押してくれる街でもあります。もし、出てみたいけど言葉の壁が、とか何から手をつけたらいいのか、と迷っているならとりあえず飛び込んでみて下さい。その経験こそがアーティストの糧になります。



Designer: Satoko Komatsu



Born and raised in Osaka, she was influenced by her parents, English
teacher and Japanese calligraphy teacher. While a university student
studying Italian language and culture, Arabic and Hebrew, she went to
Florence to study jewelry design. After 8 years career as a jewelry
designer in Japan, she moved to NY in 2013 to hone the design skill.
In 2015, she started to make her own jewelry.
