A design not possible for a Kiriko craftsperson

Cut glass with a kabuki design.
Abandoning the traditional straight lines of Edo Kiriko glass, these works reproduce the face of kabuki with hard to produce, curved lines.
The colours are of the red kabuki makeup that expresses courage and justice, and the indigo makeup representative of power beyond human ability.
The style and culture of the Edo period resonate within these modern designed works of cut glass.
