Ikora is the name of a surface technology for glass and metal, with which the coloration of the materials makes it possible to achieve particularly artfully colourful results. Karl Wiedmann invented some time after the Myra glass by chance, the more massive Ikora glass in the 1920s after a Japanese model further developed by WMF.
