Japanese glass-Stylish vessels, playful shapes

It was in the middle of the Edo Period that glass vessels were first made on a large scale in Japan. Glass dishes and plates for eating, combs, hairpins and stationary have at times been commonly accepted as the pinnacle of stylishness, and at others, a special pleasure for connoisseurs.
In this exhibition you can experience the beauty of Wa-glass (Japanese glass), which became a part of everyday life during the Edo and Meiji Periods.
The show also includes an installation using Edo wind-bells, only two of which remain in existence in Japan.
