Takahito KOMURE


Artist’s statement

To me, “Craftsmanship” is to create a permanent object based on a moment ofinspiration coming from a sound, a colour, a smell, the air - something that has touched you,and then share it with others.

What is indispensable for me is water and time.

Glass is liquid, and it changes its form withtime.

Water is liquid, and it changes its form with time.

What attracts me is the organic formgenerated by both glass and water.Glass work is the sculpting of light.

Glass has the properties of reflecting, permeating, andcontaining light, and is capable of creating mysterious expressions.

The material in itself attractsme.Water, time, light, and glass - my work comes alive.
