Wa Glass (Japan Glass Art)


"Isn't it possible to preserve the. Japanese spirit and traditions that have been spun from the predecessor to posterity?"

Based on the experience and knowledge gained in kimono design,
glass crafts, and modern architecture, the traditional beauty of the kimono was
carefully processed and preserved into a special glass. Welcome to the world of Wa Glass.

Concept

Wa Glass = Kimono & Glass

“Wa” means Japanese style, reconcile and peace. The kimono is the world's best works of art which represent “Wa”, created with Japanese spirit and traditional techniques. However, in today's Japanese culture, the chances of wearing a kimono are decreasing, and the work of craftsmen who create the best works of art is lessening. Thus, the number of craftsmen who hand down the best traditional techniques is hard to find. We will bequeath the Japanese spirit and traditional techniques through Wa Glass.

The creation of “Wa Glass”

1. The process of making "Wa Glass" starts from cutting the kimono cloth to the size of the products, and the artist retouches the work as needed to improve its quality and look.
2. After finishing the retouch, sandwich the cloth with special UV protective glass and base material, and finally bake at a low temperature.
3. By sandwiching the kimono cloth with the special UV protective glass, the whole design will have more glow. This special glass will protect kimono cloths from Ultra-Violet. As a result, the colors will not fade and ensure the long-lasting of a Wa Glass.
