FRESCO TAKESHI TSUJINO
”Hight quality products have no meaning if people don’t use them.”
Born in Osaka.
Graduated from Osaka Design College
Moved to the U.S.Awhere he learned glass blowing techniques at Pilchuck Glass School.
Established the glass studio “Fresco” in Izumi, Osaka
Takeshi Tsujino made some glass dishes for TSURU.
He blows the melted glass at 1200℃ and brings it to life. It’s a technique he has learned at the “Studio Glass Movement” which was a very big in the USA. Artists used to have their own atelier where they would blow glass.
He has spend more than 5 years mastering different techniques and even though his works are very modern and finely designed they perfectly fit in everyones daily life. The smooth forms and textures of the glass give life to the object.
“Even hight quality products have no meaning if people don’t use them” is his motto. “More glass for the Japanese lifestyle”
He doesn’t only want to make glasses and plates but he also would like to expand his art to lamps and interiors to create a living artistic space.
