SKU glassobject-05
  • Artist: Yukito Nishinaka
  • Size: Φ11.5xH8.0cm
  • Material: Glass

Pursue the original glass expression created from the traditional Japanese sense of beauty, with the theme of “Glitter of Life and Reborn”. 

Yukito Nishinaka’s representative works are “Glass Yobitsugi” and “Glass Karesansui.” The philosophy of Glass Yobitsugi is “Shatter to Reborn and Create the Future". He accepts the cracks of the vessel as beauty—then emphasizes and restores them—whereas such defects would be typically considered undesirable in the world. To go beyond the present to reborn, he breaks his own works and rejoins them into new single form. "Glass Karesansui" is the art space, which is a modern version of Karesansui Garden, made of glass objects created from recycled bottle, moss and gravel. The 40-meters long glass installation located at the approach to Kyoto Honen-in Temple represents metempsychosis and peace of mind, as well as the importance of a sustainable society through resource recycling.
