Aki was born in Japan. For many years she has been designing art, using a wide variety of materials such as textile, clay and metal, more recently using her drawing skills to transpose onto glass, utilising the light fused within her drawings, enhancing the unique qualities that glass offers.
Aki is inspired by the organic world such as nature, plants and animals, humans and their emotions. She captures and emulates these elements into her artwork.
Glassworks are mostly hand painted images in kiln-formed or architectural fields. Every piece is a unique and one off design.
Aki is based out of the WASPS studio in Denistoun Glasgow.
