Biography: Shin-ichi Higuchi
In 1987, Shin-ichi Higuchi began his serious research in the techniques of pâte de verre with Kimiake Higuchi. Neither of them had received any formal training in glass. They established many of their original techniques through several years of trial and error. Their work is represented in many museums and galleries and is collected globally. They have been invited to teach workshops in many parts of the world, including Japan, France, Italy, Taiwan, Spain, New Zealand, and the United States.
