Hashimura Glass

Daisaku Hashimura has worked in various places as a glass artist, not only around Japan but also going as far as Sweden to broaden the scope of his training. Using a variety of techniques, each and every one of his blown glass works is created to be one-of-a-kind, impossible to recreate in the exact same way. Hashimura credits his wife, Nomichi, for all of their watercolour-style works. Although he blows the glass into shape, she has established an incredible technique of colouring the glass and then gently carving the outer layer away to reveal a pattern underneath.
