Glass / Yoshihiko Takahashi (1958 ~)

Yoshihiko Takahashis works


Don't look like anyone

Not similar to anything

The creative has no end

There is no answer

A person whose shape is born before its use

The destination is free

Although the technique is stoic

I forget about that

It just makes it fun


It is also new to remember that a large-scale exhibition was held at the National Crafts Museum in Tokyo in 2011.

Yoshihiko Takahashi always blows the wind of originality into the glass world.

Where does that fascinating creative come from?

We hope that you will feel the overflowing expressive power of Yoshihiko Takahashi.
