gorgeous bubbles of glass

Being a glass artist, this medium is something I never get tired of admiring.  I have not tried blowing glass, shaping blobs of liquid from a furnace to transform them into vessels, or sculpture.  I can only imagine the delicate touch required to create “Shipment from California”, by glass and installation artist Hiromi Takizawa.

I wonder if they pop if you were to touch them, very gently?

She was born and raised in Japan, inspired by native artists as a child.  She now lives in California, but her work is influence by both cultures. See more of her work at: www.hiromitakizawa.com. Her portfolio also features more pictures of the iridized glass bubbles – wonderful.
