Masahiro Sasaki: Guest Artist Demonstration

Amphitheater Hot Shop
August 15, 2019 6:00pm to 7:30pm

See guest artist Masahiro Sasaki during a live, narrated demonstration in the Amphitheater Hot Shop on August 15 from 6 to 7:30 pm. Japanese artist Sasaki subscribes to the concept of “kogei,” skilled craftsmanship, and how material and technique lead to form.

Sasaki leads the glass program at Aichi University in Japan. In his work, he likes to experiment with organic shapes to create sculptures with an inorganic material.

This demo is included in the cost of admission (kids and teens 17 and under are free).

Masahiro Sasaki

Tensei, a Japanese concept similar to metamorphosis or reincarnation, is at the center of Masahiro Sasaki’s work. He is fascinated by the collaboration of artist and glass properties to create organic shapes out of an inorganic material. “After sand is transformed into glass under extreme heat, I guide it to form a shape,” said Sasaki.
