Glassware that draws you into another world inside the glass

  • Layers of colored glass are blown on top of each other, then sand-blasted to remove a thin layer of glass
  • Expressing a story based on the artist's own experience
  • All works are one-offs

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 Ai Kigoshi, so please take a peek into this beautiful other world.

Artist Kigoshi says,

A girl's life is full of many things, but I hope that she will be flexible enough to accept and enjoy them.

While raising my daughter, I find myself pondering the thoughts and upbringing of her friends, realizing the remarkable diversity of our times. I think that girls living today, with so many choices, will also face many obstacles. At such times, I hope they don't miss the little reminders and signs, enjoy what has happened, and keep moving forward.

Through my creations, I have crafted my works with a heartfelt desire to support girls or those who were once girls. In the way the Girls live their lives, there is no such thing as losing or a great failure. I want them to go on and on without fear.
