Biography: Yukiko Sugano

Yukiko Sugano
Name: 
Yukiko Sugano

Japanese glass artist Yukiko Sugano utilizes mixed metals, flameworking techniques, and personal memories to translate the “texture of emotion” into something tangible. “I mix my memories and emotions to make works with people and other living things as motifs to express a sense of memory that cannot be controlled by reason,” said Sugano.

A resident of Hyōgo Prefecture in Japan, Sugano attended and graduated from the Notojima Glass Studio in 2012. Since that time, she has worked in multiple Japanese glass studios before joining the Kanazawa Utatsuyama Kogei Kobo in 2019. In July 2019, Sugano won the Kogei World Art Competition in Kanazawa Japan.

During her residency at The Studio of The Corning Museum of Glass in 2020, Sugano intends to expand on her expressive drawings by experimenting with a variety of new materials.
