Mai Yamamoto

Love these delicate glass orbs created by Japan-based artist Mai Yamamoto.  As usual there isn’t much information on the artist.  We do know that she studied at the Tokyo University of the Arts, University of Wolverhampton, UK and Anadolu Universitesi in Turkey.  She has also worked at the renowned Japanese glass studio, Ushio.

You can more of her work on her website, Facebook and Instagram.

Mellow Glass, Japan


Been awhile since we’ve visited this Japanese studio, Mellow Glass.  We know very little about the glass artist Tanakayumi but we do know we love her work and want to see what’s new.

You can follow the artist on Tumblr, Facebook and Instagram.

Amber Cowan


Philadelphia-based artist and educator Amber Cowan is the creator of these extraordinary sculptures made out of recycled pressed glass. The glass used is generally sought through thrift stores, flea markets and post-production factory runs. She frameworks, blows and hot sculpts the glass into folkloric scenes of leaves, flowers, animals and human figures. 

More of her work can be seen on her website and Instagram.
