Sandwich Glass Museum - Infuse III - Handblown Glass Artist Sayuri Kinsbury
In the Contemporary Glass Gallery:
Due to the immense popularity of this creative and well-known glass artist, the Sandwich Glass Museum welcomes Sayuri Kingsbury on her third visit to the Museum from February 1 - March 30, 2014. This multi-talented artist grew up in Sapporo, Japan and started glassblowing at a small glass factory in her hometown when she was 18 years old. She worked in japan and Sweden before moving to the United States. She has shown her work internationally and it is easy to see why. She produces an amazing amount of her own work while maintaining a rigorous schedule for several different glassblowers.
She works each piece individually using her distinctive technique for recycling the glass from the glass artists she works for. Sayuri is an annual Glassblowers' Christmas participant. Her innovative and imaginative work is mesmerizing and perfection itself.
