Masuda Hiromi: Play the Glass

Masuda Hiromi born in Jokohama 1942 is a japanese glassartist. The installation, titled ‘Play the Glass’, is one of the artist’s most famous works, expressing his poetic creativity with a play on words. “Hiromi Masuda’s glass creations”, explains art critic Cristina Trivellin, “are not only objects of extraordinary beauty, but something much more profound, born from the passion and love for the subject they breathe life into”. Masuda has studied Venetian glass-making for 25 years, and the artist blows the glass in Murano. She freely deforms the blown bubbles of glass and present them as veritable installations.
