I express sensibilities that blossom between both Oriental and Western cultures, always continuing in my works to depict the migratory fish, which must keep moving and swimming forward or die, as symbolizing my own way of life. I offer this as evidence that there is a glass artisan living in this fashion who continues to create works in glass.
