This vase has a beautifully curved shape with a frosted glass surface that has a subtle glisten. The blend of opacity created by burnt wax adds a brown hue to the light tones, with contrasting strokes of brown creating patterns on the surface. The colours are inspired by nature's palette, with subtle shifts in hue emphasising the elegant shape. The delicate pale neck at the top adds to the charm of the vase.


About the Artist

Aki is an artist working with glass who lives and works in Akita City. She graduated from Akita Municipal Junior College of Arts and Crafts in 2012 and worked at Toyama Glass Studio for 5 years before moving back to her hometown. In her sixteenth year of working with glass, she has participated in many group exhibitions across Japan and the UK.

Her body of work titled ‘Kuyuri’ focuses on smoke-stained with burnt wax which often unintentionally resembles an image of a natural scenery. She hopes that the burn marks from the wax will create an emotional response that resonates with people. Aki’s glass work mediates on the multifaceted forms and chromatic palettes in nature, with richly textured tones.
