Iso Artcraft Hall磯工芸館

Other Factory Tour / Demonstration

This gallery and shop is located in Kagoshima City, Kagoshima Prefecture and adjoins a Satsuma Kiriko cut glass factory. Satsuma Kiriko is known for the gradations of color created by making deep cuts into thick glass, and its intricate designs and gorgeous hues make this traditional art a delight to behold. Though the techniques went out of use at the beginning of the Meiji period, a movement to revive the art started in 1985, and it continues to be produced today. Visitors can purchase utensils, interior goods, souvenirs, and other items, and they can also observe the creation process. The old-fashioned building itself is a registered Tangible Cultural Property, making it a must-see.

Reviewed:2018/10/17 レトロな洋館と薩摩切子
明治期に建築されたレトロな洋館がギャラリーになっており、芸術品のように美しい薩摩切子が展示販売されています。晩酌用の焼酎グラスでも買って帰ろうかと思っていましたが、タンブラーが安いものでも約5万円と高価で手が出ませんでした。隣接する工房で作業を見学することもできます。
Reviewed:2018/03/29 ガラス工場とガラス工芸の展示館
尚古集成館別館と道を挟んで隣にありました。薩摩のガラス製品と言えば「薩摩切子」が有名で、非常に素晴らしい作品(使うのはもったいないくらい)で、2枚の重ね合わせガラスの表側に削りを入れているとはびっくりでした。
Reviewed:2018/02/02 尚古集成館見学と合わせ訪れると良いと思います。
薩摩切子のガラス特有の魅力的で人を幻惑させるような妖艶さや繊細さを感じ取ることが出来ますね。こちらでもお土産として購入することも出来るので、尚古集成館見学と合わせ訪れると良いと思います。

          Over 100 active volcanoes across Kagoshima make it one of the Japan's most exciting prefectures. The prefectural capital, Kagoshima city, looks out to one of the prefecture's most spectacular volcanoes, Sakurajima, an island of its own that can be visited and seen close up or admired from afar, with the promise of breathtaking sunsets complete with frequent puffs of smoke and ash. Down the Satsuma Peninsula, the most southerly part of mainland Japan, waterfalls, sand onsen, and fascinating history await, while Kagoshima's abundance of satsuma imo (sweet potato) provide a wholesome snack as well as one of Japan's favourite drinksーshochu.
