Round-Cut Glass

by Yuki Osako

Petal shaped, round cuts somehow idyllically fuse the relationship between humans and nature.  While we’ll never reach nature’s heights of perfection, Yuki’s glasses come close.  You have to see your refreshment in it though, see how it plays with the light and touch it to feel how it feels.  Intricate details make this a treasure that you can’t help but use daily.  Yuki loves glass and it shows.  Born in Tokyo in 1979, she graduated from Toyama Glass Art Laboratory in 2005 and in 2008 completed Kanazawa Utsatsuyama Craft Studio.  She currently still lives and works in Kanazawa.

About Yuki Osako

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.
