GLA GLA glass by artist Daisaku Takatomi

 

We met Daisaku Takatomi at his exhibition in Tokyo, Japan. We loved his glass sculptures and ordered some of his usable work including glass and incense holders and vases. We will soon receive pieces including vases, incense stand. All of his glasses are blown by him and each piece is unique. 

He lives in Japan’s Northern Island, Hokkaido where he makes his sculptures, glasses and objects. He also has a workshop where he invites people to come and take a glass blowing class!
