“Taisho Roman.” “Roman” derives from the words romance or romantic, which depicts dream, passion, and adventure in the Japanese language. Except for select antique glassware shops, glassware made using this technique has become rare in recent years.

By using a raw material that includes “Ash,” opalescent colors can be produced by taking advantage of its specific properties. These colors are produced through the exposure of the raw material to a sudden change in temperature during the process of glass heating and cooling at the time of molding. Through this manner, the “Aburidashi Technique” can generate a variety of artistic patterns in the glass.
