Layer pieces of flat glass and heat them in a kiln until they melt together in one piece, a process that is also known as fusing. You will secure your designs in place with glue, then the Studio staff will heat your pieces in the kiln overnight. No experience is necessary. Your pieces will be available for pick-up at a later date.

    Artist Statement

    "My journey as an artist has been informed by my experience growing up in Japan - the nexus of a profound, traditional past in co-existence and interaction with an energetic, hyper-modern future. My choice of glass as a medium reflects my experience: it is both rooted in traditional techniques while at the same time projecting a modern materiality. I want to capture this reality in my work, balancing the old and the new, honoring tradition and innovation, exploring past and future."
