Leading Japanese glass artist Niyoko Ikuta has been creating stunning ethereal glass sculptures since the early 80s. The captivating geometric sculptures are created by laminating sheets of glass using adhesive and exposing the cross sections.

Ikuta has said of her work “My motifs are derived from feelings of gentleness and harshness, fear, limitless expansion experienced through contact with nature, images from music, ethnic conflict, the heart affected by joy and anger, and prayer. In creating my pieces it is like imagining an architectural space when viewing blueprints, deciding on an image by reading into the intentions of the architect, or imbuing a space with dynamic energy to bring it to life.”
