Blown glass Perfume Bottles by Hiroshi Yamano. One of Japan’s leading figures in glass art, Hiroshi Yamano is recognized as one of Japan's foremost and innovative glass artists. Known for his diverse skills and innovative surface applications, Mr. Yamano’s work is exhibited widely in the U.S. and abroad and is included in many museum and public collections.
Complicated but richly subtle, Hiroshi Yamano creates carved and polished sculptures that refract the light and create windows, giving the viewer a sense of looking through water. Yamano began to focus on the Japanese elements inspired from antique Kano School paintings, from which he developed not only an aesthetic approach, but also a personal symbol–the fish.
Hiroshi Yamano has been an integral part of a generation of artists who have transformed the glass vessel from a functional to a sculptural form. His vessels are glass canvases for his artistic expression, and in the creation of his work, he has transformed the craft of glass into an art.
To Yamano, the glass vessel could be sculptural and beautiful, as well as functional. He also tends to incorporate both the interior and exterior of the piece.
Hiroshi Yamano began his serious study of glass at the California College of Arts and Crafts, continued his studies at the Tokyo Glass Art Institute, and received his M.F.A. from the Rochester Institute of Technology.
