Shohei IIDA (AichiGlass)

Providing Softness and Warmth in Glass


Born in Otaru City, Hokkaido in 1991, he currently lives and works in Tokoname City, Aichi Prefecture. While in high school he began on the path of glass art after helping his Otaru glass artist father in his studio. Using the technique of sorabuki glass blowing, he harnesses the strength of the studio's facilities for melting colored glass, and cherishes the unique hues created by blending. “Glass production requires facing the power of natural phenomena such as gravity and centrifugal force resulting in a feeling of being one with nature. I would like to continue using techniques I learned from my father while challenging myself to create in my own unique way. I also want to continue studying painting and crafts and incorporate the use color and shape expression in my work.” He presents the original series Dancing Glass Which Shows The Softness of Material Flowing from Cup to Base, and Domaki Using Two Colors of Glass. Ten Make Tableware, I WOULD LIKE TO CREATE MORE PIECES CONVEYING THE CHARM OF GLASS CRAFTS. "
