Midori Tsukada

June 16, 2016 - June 25, 2016
Exhibition of Glass
Midori Tsukada

Midori Tsukada’s glass works possess both a unique characteristic of coloring due to their metal composition, as well as dynamic and beautiful forms. Her pieces achieve a high level of finish.
Tsukada challenges the status quo with new techniques by tapping into the limits of the raw glass’ beauty – techniques that no one has been able to mimic.
Ginza Ippodo Gallery introduces her newest glass pieces in this exhibition and sincerely hopes that you enjoy her concise yet bold world of beauty.
