Glass carving tableaux and jewelry
Reiko F. Nojima
Flowers and trees grow from the memories we have buried in the soul gardens where we cultivate them by watering with blood and tears.
These glass tableaux have three layers. On the top sheet of glass, I carved drawings with diamond burs. I painted the second sheet with glass powder fusing. Mirror is set as the bottom layer to reflect the viewer's figure along with the reflections of other sheets to complete the tableau as a unique piece just for the viewer.
Solo exhibition Soul Gardens was held at Ecru+HM in Ginza, Tokyo from July 6 – July 13 2013.
