Glass works by Midori Tsukada
To Tsukada, that glass is a relatively new material in the field of ceramic expression brims with potential for diversity of expression. In this experimentation, the layered metals are highly unusual, with an air at once of unpredictability and mystery. During the firing process, the slow heat of the kiln curves the shape of the glass, and Tsukada gathers this shape in the final result of the object, accounting for the natural rhythms and whims of the shifting form. In the spontaneity, each object tells its own story. Natural Lace suggests the curve of an ocean wave, with swirls of blue-green and flecks of gold underscored by a deep blue. The works speak; they tell stories. They allow us to question our own existence.
From ancient times, there has been a distinctly Japanese desire to coexist with nature. To capture the earthly sensations of wind and water, of forest and fire, has a profundity that does not translate to other cultures, and is hard to put into words. But the mission of artists like Tsukada is to listening the voice of nature, and attempt to achieve this heightened embodiment through art. In this, she finds her own voice, interacting with the natural world through her creations. It is the artist’s wish that the link between nature and self through glass will resonate with audiences around the world.
