Upon receiving an order from the feudal lord, I embarked on the pursuit of glassmaking through the creation of glass beadwork. This led to the development of a pioneering domestic melting technique, paving the way for mass production.

ISHIZUKA Glass traces its origins back to 1819 during the Bunsei 2 era when Iwazaburo Ishizuka started glass manufacturing in Tsuchida, Kani City, Gifu Prefecture, where it is located today. Initially, they specialized in beadwork on orders from the Owari Domain's feudal lord. However, they gradually shifted their focus to glass production during the Meiji and Taisho periods. The turning point came in 1927, during the Showa 2 era, when they achieved success in melting raw materials in a Siemens tank furnace for the first time in Japan. This marked a shift towards mass production for Ishizuka Glass. The current Iwakura factory started operating in 1961 during the Showa 36 era. With the expansion of their bottle business alongside their entry into the tableware industry, the brand 'ADERIA' was born at that time.

ADERIA" is born through a full-scale entry into the tableware and bottle business. With a product lineup ahead of the times, it becomes a staple glassware for ordinary households.

The creator of "ADERIA" was once a member of the NHK program called "Watashi no Himitsu" (My Secret). It is said that the name was given by the program members, inspired by the Adelia Sea, which is one of the birthplaces of glass. Since then, the brand has continued to expand, becoming a beloved presence for over 50 years. Every household had at least one ADERIA product, such as retro-patterned cups, soy sauce dispensers, and plum wine bottles used for making plum liqueur.
