In all its aspects, glass possesses contradictory characteristics. This material fascinates me - fragile but strong, existing on both micro and macro levels, with forms that are either sharp or flexible, reflecting light or allowing it to penetrate through and thus manipulate the depth to which light reaches. I find it interesting how glass' micro level organization, so weak on the simple level, becomes strong when structures come together, and will sometimes create flexible structures, and that structures from the micro level can also serve a purpose at the macro level. It's also very interesting how slight differences in structure or environment, even with the same module, can allow the creation of entirely different structures. I see my glass in terms of a life (a form or structure) that at one point may seem to disappear but is transmuted repeatedly, like moving along a food chain. In this day and age, when environmental issues are much talked about and we are haunted by the sense of having no cultural base, there's a real interest in the economical designs and well thought-out sense of space of ancient Japan. I am aiming for formative art that can exist as an absolutely indispensable element in its space and environment, and in harmony with it.
