Glass Artist : Yukiko Nakano
This artist works entirely with glass. Starting by blowing the glass itself and then cover with glass painting as a whole. She lets the blown glass cool up for a day. After masking the pattern, it is processed by sandblasting colors.
Here is a fragment of her own work interpretation:
“If you are looking at the flowers that are translucent to the light and their veins that show up in the green, you wish to draw lines: a series of quiet impulses.
A strong feeling wrapped in soft breeze, almost the sensation of moist on my palm.
The breath blowing the hot glass creating forms is amazingly beautiful… Just like a natural connection with your heart.”
Yukiko’s artworks can be used in several ways: just as an ornament, with LED light inside as a table Christmas decoration or for Ikebana to name a few ideas. Each piece has his unique touch.
