Yuki Osako
Kanazawa, Japan

Yuki Osako practices the alchemy of glass to translate her surroundings, like the pure snow on an untouched rice field or the winter’s light through a window.  Balancing on the fulcrum of form and function, Yuki handcrafts her glassworks by phases of blowing, grinding, cutting and burning the glass in a kiln; achieving her geometry with trial and error.  Whether frosted like a misty morning or transparent, there’s an attention to detail that reveals exquisite gradients of texture.  Yuki constantly studies, gaining a deeper understanding of the material she uses,  experiencing the feeling that the glass is breathing back to her during her work.
