Ryukyu Blown Glass

Then what has been the fine art for Okinawans? You probably have already seen if you are or have been on the island: Ryukyu glass.
Ryukyu glass is an art of glass that requires proficient skills to make and also symbolizes Okinawan history. It was started to be made after World War ll out of the Coke bottles discarded by Americans stationed there.
