Hiroshi Yamano and Naoko Takonouchi
Hiroshi Yamano has been working in glass for over 25 years and has been inspired by the forms and movement of fish. His glass art has a fluid quality and depicts meditative and solitary moments, surrounded by a universe in flux. He has studied widely and earned his MFA at the Rochester Institute of Technology.
Naoko Takonouchi has exhibited her work worldwide and was included in New Glass Review 16, Contemporary Glass: Color, Light & Form, as well as many other leading publications. Her current series, Migratory Birds, beautifully explores their mysterious and astonishing journeys. She completed her degree in design and glassblowing at Tama Art University in Tokyo.
