“Since I have immersed myself in the world of glass, my working days are a struggle with its materials. I think of my works in glass as ‘light-sculptures’. I finish them delicately by hand, one-by-one, like painting with pigments, to express the characteristics of glass – transparency, opacity, translucency, reflectiveness, transmission, and refraction. I hope viewers will appreciate the mysterious world of glass, of ‘light-sculpture’ they have never seen before.” — Takahito Komure
