Yoichi Ohira is a Japanese glass artist who has been living and working in Venice for more than twenty-five years. After years of work combining the deep aesthetic tradition of Japan with the centuries-old techniques of Venetian glass-making, he burst onto the international scene with two highly successful gallery shows and is now regarded as one of the premier glass artists working today. His work is in the collection of major museums, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the American Craft Museum, and he has been exhibited alongside works by Dale Chihuly, Lino Tagliapietra, Carlo Scarpa, Alvar Aalto, and others. This deluxe edition accompanies an exhibit of Ohira's work in the fall of 2002. It includes more than 300 works, 100 of them new. All of the works are reproduced in high-quality prints that vividly illustrate the color and luminosity of his art. Essays by Attilia Dorigato, Jean Luc Olivie, Susanne K. Franz, William Warmus, and Rosa Barovier Mentasti accompany the plates.
