In no other country are arts and crafts as highly regarded as in Japan – and no other place stands as compellingly for glass as Murano. The encounter of these two traditions brings masterworks of modern glass art to the fore. The glass receptacles by Kyohei Fujita (Tokyo 1921), the pioneer of Japanese studio glass movement, carries the art of Japanese lacquerware forward into a new medium. The glass artist Yasuhiko Tsuchida (Osaka 1969) leads Venetian glass blowing techniques to a pinnacle of virtuosity. Centre stage of the exhibition, however, are the timelessly appealing receptacles of the designer Yoichi Ohira (Tokyo 1946). This exhibition marks the beginning of a collaboration of the Glasmuseum Hentrich with an outstanding and comprehensive private collection of modern glass art from Murano.
