Her wife of her wife who liked the work that was likely to draw from a young place. When she wanted to be a hand job, she was shocked to the work of Australian glass writer made of a blown glass, and she learned at the Tokyo Glass Crafts Institute Become. After graduation, she will continue to learn the production technology of blowing glass in the future, and to the students of Nasu Kojima Glass Studio. After she finished the course, she really wanted to work and she joined with a tenacity and joined. She continues to pile her experience in Nasu Kojima.

To go. If you stop the rotation of the chopsticks, the heated glass will fall, but Akiichiro-san has dropped the glass that seems to fall off and it has passed by hand! ?
