Works by Izumi Ōki

Ōki Izumi was born in Tokyo, Japan. She graduated in ancient Japanese literature at the Waseda University of Tokyo. In 1977, she won a scolarship from the Italian Government. In 1981, she graduated at the Brera Academy. She tested herself with all traditional materials, from marble to bronze, but as soon as she received her diploma she went back to the only one she feels really hers, glass. The glass she uses is not the precious and clear crystal, but the industrial one, blue-green coloured, recalling the natural elements of water and air, very special to Japanese culture.
