Kimiake Higuchi

Artist, Japan

Kimiake Higuchi explored the technique of pâte de verre based on ceramic making techniques, and after much trial and error, she and her husband Shinichi established their individual technique around 1988. In 1988, she and Shinichi held their first glass exhibition in Tokyo. Since then, she has been exhibiting her work both in Japan and abroad, as well as sharing her techniques in workshops and lectures whenever she has the opportunity.

Nature of Pâte de verre

I am going to talk about my first encounter with glass, how I came to work with glass, my creative activities in the forest environment, my works, the feelings I felt there, the reflections I gained from the voices of the forest, and my wishes for the future.
