Kazuko Mitsushima


After studying engraving, she developed her own style by refining her glassblowing techniques in various locations, including the Pilchuck Glass School in Seattle.

She has won awards at the International Jewellery Exhibition and the Japan Craft Exhibition. Her collections are also held in museums overseas.

After 30 years of presenting her work in Japan and abroad, she continues to pursue her unique sensibility with a high level of skill and expression, and is always at the forefront of the art world.
