Hilton Hotel, Okinawa Island, Japan.

Tuesday, August 5th, 2014

A piece of my work has recently been installed into a Hilton Hotel on the Island of Okinawa, Japan.

Ryukyu glass is one of Okinawa’s artisan specialties, dating back to the Meiji era about a century ago, but a craft that gained momentum post World War II. The island and it’s manufacturing, including a small number of glass makers were devastated during the war. Raw materials such as beer and soft drink bottles discarded on the U.S. military bases were taken by innovative Okinawa craftsmen, melted down and shaped into glasses, vases and dishes. The unique, distinctive appearance stems from the imperfections found in the glass itself.  In the 1950s, the U.S. forces found the colorful items so amazing, they commissioned products exclusively for their use on the bases.

Since the war, the Okinawan art of glass-making has been refined and has blossomed into one of the island’s proudest traditions. The local craft now attracts interest among visitors from across Asia and the world with exceptionally skilled pieces selling for thousands of dollars. “Ryukyu-glass” is the craft rooted to Okinawa Prefecture and the idea of rebirth of glass is very similar in concept to my artworks.
