Shotoku Glass

Tokyo Prefecture, Japan

The Shotoku atelier is established in the heart of Tokyo, in the Sumida district, near Asakusa, a traditional district where many small family factories have been established from the Edo period. Founded in 1922, the Shotoku atelier's primary purpose was to make hand-blown light bulbs, a technique, almost an art, mastered here to perfection. But as time went by, with the industrialization of the processes, it was quickly necessary to find a way of reconversion and it was in the service glass that the company oriented itself. Thus, during the 20th century, the Shotuku company produced tens of thousands of glasses of such finesse and elegance that they gradually imposed themselves as true references. They entered the greatest restaurants in Tokyo, then in Japan, to serve sake, instead of the traditional chokos or sakazuki.
