Glassware that draws you into another world inside the glass
This glass vessel is crafted through the artistry of sandblasting, a technique in which the glass surface is delicately abraded with fine grains of sand.
Each work is filled with stories and thoughts depicted by Kigoshi, so please take a peek into this beautiful other world.
The "Hariko dog" is an ancient Japanese toy that symbolizes celebration of a child's birth and conveys wishes for their robust growth and protection from malevolent forces.
This work is filled with a wish for the healthy growth of children.
Artist Ai Kigoshi says,
I am interested in things like old customs and ethnography. Among them, imagery associated with celebrations and warding off evil is particularly conducive to being depicted on vessels. Unlike pottery, I am contemplating how to incorporate such imagery into glassware. I am mindful of capturing the mischievous charm of Hariko dog.
