Yoshihiko served his apprenticeship as a glass artist in Germany after graduating from university. Following return to Japan, he opened his own atelier in Sagamihara, Kanagawa prefecture – his hometown.
He is one of the popular glass artists in Japan and his works are displayed even in the National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo.
He does not rely on machine as much as possible and uses handblown techniques taking advantage of gravity and centrifugal force. His glass products comfortably fit in your hand and mouth. You must feel that any drink poured in his glass gets upgraded.
