TAKARA 9 Shima Koike(Chiba pref.)

Koike says that glass is ambivalent.

While it is beautiful and delicate, it is also violent and insane and can cause injury if mishandled. Glass, she says, is a metaphor for the finite nature of life and the relationship between each life.

The work is not abstract but perhaps expresses a small figure that can be found in our daily lives.
