Artist Spotlight - Toshio Iezumi

Toshio Iezumi was born 1954 in Tochigi, Japan. After graduating from high school he worked at a camera company where he learned how to polish lenses. In 1983, he began to learn glass art at the Tokyo Glass Art Institute where he started to make sculptures out of sheet glass.

 

After graduating, Iezumi developed a special technique for shaping glass by laminating sheets of glass into a bloc, and carving and polishing the bloc with stone carving tools. Influenced by Ancient Chinese bronzes as well as the works of Brâncuşi and Donald Judd, Iezumi’s technique of direct curving and dealing with light reflection and refraction seeks to illustrate volume and depth as it occurs in the glass.

With access to over 10,000 artworks by 1,000+ artists from around the world, our Art Advisory & Curatorial Services can make all the difference. From selection and purchase of artwork, to its place in your home or office, we can save you time and effort. We can get started by phone, email or with an obligation-free visit to your home or office.
