Shoyu Sashi Series

This is a special reprinted edition of Hirota Glass' Soy Sauce Cruet from the 1930's, that is incredibly nostalgic due to the vintage glass design. The spout was redesigned to prevent unnecessary spillage, making for better use. The top of the spout is embossed with Hirota's traditional sparrow logo. The glass itself is slightly tinted, giving it an old, retro feel. Fill the glass with soy sauce or any other liquid condiment of your choice, such as vinegar or a nice olive oil. 

We offer three classic designs: Shoyu-taru (Soy Sauce Barrel), Kagome (Bamboo Woven Pattern), and Sakura (Cherry Blossom). Kodaishoku is an ancient Japanese term used to describe the amber hue.

Authentic Tokyo Glassware

Made with only the finest materials by highly skilled artisans in Tokyo, Hirota Glass has excelled in making the most beautiful glass tableware. Founded in 1899 by Kinta Hirota in Kinshi, Sumida ward, Tokyo, Hirota Glass has established itself as one of the pioneers of Japanese glassware. Now the company is under the 4thgeneration glassmaker, Tatsuro Hirota, and has evolved its own signature style through harmonizing traditional European glass techniques with Japanese artistry. Hirota Glass stays true to its classic designs and influences dating back to the pre-war period, continuing to push hand-crafted glass to its artistic limits.

 

The “aburidashi” technique which originated during the Meiji (1868-1912) and Taisho (1912-1926) periods, is one that Hirota Glass artisans are highly skilled in. By mixing “bone ash” with other natural materials, and exposing the glass to a process of rapid heating and cooling during molding, the end result is a beautiful opalescent (milky) finish. Through this process, the skilled artisans are able to showcase a variety of artistic patterns in the glass. This is a reason why it remains one of Japan’s unique, traditional handcrafting techniques.
