Kirikane (cut foil) embellishing is applied between the glass to lock in the kirikane patterns. Producing kirikane glass artworks by placing kirikane (a technique to cut thin lines of layered gold, silver and platinum foil and adhering them with glue and a brush to create patterns) within the transparent glass as if it were floating in space. With the optical characteristics of glass such as reflecting and refracting, the kirikane floating in the glass creates various patterns like a kaleidoscope.
