The Sutherland Endowed Chair in Glass Lecture Series: Hiroshi Yamano

As a master at the forefront of Japanese glass art, Hiroshi Yamano's work is internationally respected for both its abundance of content as well as its refined level of execution.  Yamano's glass moves beyond pure aesthetics and explores specific narratives by tying together themes of Japanese culture, nature, and the struggles of humankind.  As objects and installations, Hiroshi Yamano's pieces evidence an absolute mastery and refinement of cold, warm, and hot glassworking techniques and processes.

A career artist and an educator, Hiroshi Yamano has helped to establish and fortify the pursuit and study of contemporary glass art in Japan. He is a co-founder of Ezra Glass Studio, and Chairperson of the Osaka University of the Arts Glass Program.  In 1991, he was awarded the prestigious Rakow Commission by the Corning Museum of Glass. His work can be found on display in galleries throughout the world.
