Lives and works in Osaka, Japan

 
Selected Works

Hiroshi Yamano

 

Born in Fukuoka, Japan, in 1956, Hiroshi studied and worked in both Japan and the United States.  He began to focus on the Japanese elements inspired from antique Kano School paintings, from which he developed not only an aesthetic approach, but also a personal symbol- the fish.  Hiroshi has long identified with fish swimming the oceans, as he so often traverses the vast waters between continents in his own life.

Hiroshi Yamano began his serious study of glass at the California College of Arts and Crafts, continued his studies at the Tokyo Glass Art Institute, and received his M.F.A. from the Rochester Institute of Technology.  He is now recognized as one of Japan's foremost and innovative glass artists.
