This is a completely new Kiriko that is a collaboration of the cutting technique of Edo Kiriko and the technique of Mr. Kazuo Hanaoka, who trained in Gravile cutting in Italy. The material is crystal glass for jewelry, and it is a product that incorporates a sense of jewels that projects a unique prism when exposed to light. The sign name will also be the double name of the Edo Kiriko craftsman and Mr. Hanaoka.
